A WORD ABOUT INSPIRATION
Light, one-layered and airy, this vest means freedom on a hot day. To keep the elegance alive (since vests are conventionally considered quite sporty), Monika has picked smart light grey, steel blue and coral coloured versions. If it suddenly gets a bit cooler or breezier while you’re pedalling, the lapels can be turned up and fastened for protection. And more good news? Its darted pockets mean you can leave your backpack at home.
A WORD ABOUT FABRICS
The body of the vest is much lighter than classic vests and lets you move about freely by being stretchable in four directions – very rare in the world of fabrics. The fabric also protects you against harmful UV rays, while making sure that the colour will not fade over time in the sunlight.
For those who decide they need to sling a backpack over their shoulders after all, the light grey version’s shoulder area has been reinforced with a special breathable, abrasion resistant, wind and water repellent fabric to avoid damage to the vest’s shoulders. And because rain hits the shoulders first, the light grey is the perfect pick for those who intend to wear the vest despite those few raindrops falling from the sky.
LOOKING CLOSELY AT THE DETAILS
SINGLE LAYER – the vest is unlined to retain elasticity and breathability
INNER SEAMS LINED WITH CONTRASTING COLOUR – simply for the pleasure of knowing that the inside has been designed with equal precision as the outside
DRAWSTRING AT WAISTLINE – can be tightened so the jacket will sit nicely on the body even in windy conditions
CLEVER LAPELS - can be turned up against the wind using a simple button mechanism under the lapel. When the lapels are closed, the button is not visible, devised so as not to diminish the elegance of the piece
POCKETS – you will find an open slanted outside pocket on the left side of the chest (approximately the size of a mobile phone) and three closable darted outside pockets on the front with flaps and our iconic Free Circle buttons. The chest pocket is smaller, the two bottom ones are larger. More things can fit inside when they are darted at the bottom and can conveniently replace a smaller bag or backpack, while lending the piece a more casual air
THE FREE CIRCLE BUTTON – 100% natural Corozo buttons are always carefully chosen to match the colour of the fabric. As with every Corozo button on our clothing, this one too carries a laser printed Free Circle hallmark as a little greeting from us to you
