Street and Cycle Fashion

So news news news...anyway I have been away for the past few days on a little holiday in a Tipi, yes you did hear that right - a Tipi - and it was great. Also I have finally quit my job (Big cheer) which means more blogging and photography time, so I am very excited about that. This is just a short little post about my current favourites - I am in love with this blog called Cycle Chic - fashion on bikes from Copenhagen and other parts of the world, if you have time check this blog out!. How I do wish that the UK was as cycle friendly as cities in europe, like Amsterdam. Also how I wish for a real vintage bike so I can ride around and feel like I am in the film 500 days of summer.

So being from South Africa originally and from one of the most colourful cities in the world - Cape Town, and with all the craze of the football happening at the moment, I thought I would shed some light on one of my favourite street fashion photographers who simply captures they current creativity in the street trends out there at the moment. Nontsikelelo Veleko really is an amazing photographer and shows of how beautiful and colour the people and country really is.


  1. I love the pics of the girls with bikes - I am always thinking to do that because there are so many around here!

  2. Wow, some of the womens clothes are really unique!

  3. Great street style post....I am going to check out that bike blog. Loving the your blog aswell :)

  4. I adore the tights that the girl in the yellow dress has on. They rock! I've been wanting to get a new bike, although I live in the country without anywhere to go.

  5. I am a little torn over 'cycle chic'.
    I'm afraid I just hate it that in a way it's encouraging people not to wear helmets. I was so happy in London at the weekend, after all the cyclists that had gone by and some of them rather riskily so (I very nearly got run over by one actually) when I saw a a somewhat sylish lady cyclist wearing a helmet.
    My parents have always been the kind to encourage safety first, and I've begrudged them it at times. However last year my sister had an accident on her bike and though she was not good for a while we were told the helmet really did safe her life.
    Yet on the one hand I think cycling is great as both a way to keep fit and an alternative to cars and other less green methods of transport. And I really get the allure of a vintage bike as well!
    What can I say, I'm torn!
    I think some fabulous designer needs to create a chic range of helmets.

    I really love the colours in those last few images.
