Passoni | ashmei collaborate to create limited edition capsule clothing collection
We are delighted to debut our first ever apparel collaboration with prestigious Italian bicycle manufacturer Passoni. Lovingly crafted to reflect the highly desirable nature of the hand built Passoni frames, the limited edition six-piece capsule collection of luxury cycling apparel, features performance Jerseys, Softshell Jacket, Bib Shorts and lifestyle T-shirt.
The collection has been finished in luxury fabrics such as Alcantara, MERINO+CARBON and Ultra Stretch Microfibre. Alcantara, in particular – which features in Passoni yellow on the trim – is a highly desirable luxurious performance material used in designer furniture and Italian thoroughbred sports cars such as Pagani, Lamborghini and Ferrari. The six piece capsule features a long and short sleeve silhouette Jersey in MERINO+ CARBON, a 3 Season race fit Jersey, Merino T-shirt, Bib Shorts and Ultimate Softshell Jacket.
Passoni and ashmei strike a harmonious union, fusing the best of high performance British design, with bespoke Italian craftsmanship and rigorous attention to detail. Passoni Sales and Technical Manager Danilo Colombo says, “The bikes we create offer cutting edge technology, high quality materials and components as well as a classic Italian style. We think this is perfectly reflected in the beautiful new range of clothing we have designed with ashmei.”
Stuart Brooke, founder of ashmei, adds, “It felt to me as though there was a great deal of synergy between Passoni and ashmei in terms of our values and the way we approach design. They, like us, are incredibly material focused and aim to make the ultimate product. This made the collaboration a natural and organic fit. We are incredibly proud of the results.”
