British label Paul Smith is reuniting with mountain biking imprint Rapha for an all-new capsule collection that displays the duo’s love for cycling.

The offering embraces the decade-long friendship between Rapha CEO Simon Mottram and Paul Smith, acknowledging how sport can bring like-minded people together. The co-ed range features a variety of cycle-ready gear made for immersive bike rides, taking inspiration from bold jersey designs that honor friendship and community.

Cycling tops and bib shorts are made to match, featuring Paul Smith’s identifiable jacquard fabrics across the collection. The skin-tight uniforms sport Rapha’s Cycling Club stripes in primary tones, celebrating its collaborator’s appreciation for brightness. Athletic jackets boast Artist Stripe-inspired zippers and reflective detailing mirrored onto co-branded caps and glasses. Every garment is tonally adorned with Paul Smith’s rabbit character, leaping onto orange arm badges in triangle formation.

Take a closer look at the latest Paul Smith x Rapha cycling collaboration in the gallery above.
