THE ONLY PAIR OF WHEELS YOU NEED IN SLOVENIA
By Sara Darling
The Slovenians are a very cool nation! And after visiting MBFWLJ, I can see that they are very trendy too!
So it's no wonder that they have fused two of their talents in a fashion-bike hybrid.
The humble Pony brand of bikes has been two wheels of choice or more than 65 years in Eastern Europe, and the affectionately named Rog’s bikes are the flagship of Slovenian cycling tradition.
However 2017 has seen a new look to the classic shape, as Mercedes-Benz Fashion Award winner, Sari Valenci has worked her magic on the classic Pony.
Transforming the well-loved Pony-Rog city bike with it's teeny frame and dinky wheels must have been a cool gig for uber cool sportswear designer Sari, as the results are a mash up of her 90s aliens collection, with a sprinkling of pastels for added cuteness!
With mis-matched graffiti prints, funky accessories, and super grip tyres, this is certainly a set of wheels that will get you noticed. Get on that pony and ride!
As they say in Ljubljana #fashionrides
