The new Rapha Spring 22 collection of cycling gear is not functional clothing. It’s art.

There are a few brands that never disappoint me. One of them is Rapha, a London-based cycling clothing and accessories manufacturer famous for creating the most stylish cycling clothing to ever exist on this planet. But with its new spring 22′ color lookbook, Rapha really knocked it out of the park. It’s pure art.

Just to clarify, this is not a new product as such, but rather a color refresh. But the care and love put into this collection is insane. Whoever took the photos for the Rapha Spring 22 Lookbook, I want that person (or people) to photograph me as well so that I look as majestic as the models in these images.

Look at the pictures:

Funnily enough, the products look just as cool in real life as they do in the photos. Discover the women’s collection here and that of men this way. The colors, shapes and design are perfect and somehow the collection works in its entirety as well as at the individual product level.

If I have to select one product that stands out for me, it’s the Rapha Men’s Trail Pants, especially the dark purple/light gray colourway. It’s practically perfect, from the materials to the shape to fit. You know what? I’m going to choose two other items from the collection because why not?

the Rapha Classic Climb Jersey is also absolute perfection in the Peach/Terracotta colorway. And this is from someone who thinks cycling jerseys look stupid in general, especially when you’re not on the bike. Not this one, though. Finally, since I am huge fan of cycling socks with style, I can not do not mention the Rapha Graphic Socks.

And just for good measure, I should also mention the Rapha Classic Bib Shorts in this sublime Wine/Off-White colorway. Well made shorts, am I right?
