Really excited about seeing the Vitamin A Eco - collection first hand at Mode City. Launching in Europe the 'Smoke' runaway wrap worn here with a gorgeous Doma biker jacket is the ultimate piece to pack on the bike. Using 100% recycled nylon fiber and manufactured in the US, designer Amahlia Stevens has called on her past work with Patagonia eco-guru Yvon Chouinard to create a capsule collection in crisp, clean solids and exotic prints inspired by nomadic travels. A portion of all sales proceeds will be donated to Heal the Bay, a non-profit organisation whose aim is to keep the waters of Southern California safe, healthy and clean. Amahalia started Vitamin A in 2000 with the 'California Cut' concept, bridging the gap between Brazilian and American cuts. It works and she has gained a celebrity following among Hollywood. I am loving the fact you can buy the pieces separately to create different looks - ideal for minimalist motorbike riding! Bikini Beach Star are the stockist for Summer Sun 2012. Check out Beach fashion shop if you can wait till then!
PS. the girls at Omnitrade that deal with Vitamin A in Europe chose the Runaway wrap as the ultimate piece to take on a motorbike. Mr P on the other hand seemed quite enchanted with the 'Commando' invisible underwear...wonder WHY?
