Louis Vuitton has teamed up with Maison TAMBOITE, an artisanal, Paris-based bike-maker, to craft a selection of fashion-punched two-wheelers.

Under the moniker “Louis Vuitton Bike,” the collaboration sees a blending of both Maisons’ penchant for leather craftsmanship and woodwork across two new models: the “Closed Frame” and the “Step-Through.” The former enlists monogram perforations on the leather saddle, contrast edge-painting on the handles and a functional luggage rack, while the latter employs cranksets shaped like monogram flowers, a charming front basket and a frame adorned with Louis Vuitton’s signature branding.

Both models arrive in a slew of colorways, including shades of graphite, yellow, red, blue and brown.

“The bicycles are a symbol of French craftsmanship and Parisian chic,” Louis Vuitton writes of the collection. Each model is built for both experienced and beginner cyclists, with the ability to traverse a variety of landscapes.

Both bikes are priced at £20,200. Head to Louis Vuitton’s website to peruse the full range.
