Video – Rapha + Paul Smith: A Conversation

Rapha + Paul Smith – A Conversation from RAPHA on Vimeo.

In this exclusive short film, Rapha founder and CEO Simon Mottram talks to Sir Paul Smith about the designer’s love of cycling.

Sir Paul recalls his days as a young rider, sneaking home copies of the ‘exotic’ newspaper, L’Equipe, the heroes that inspired him, and his father’s bemusement at the very un-English sport of road racing.

In October, Rapha and Sir Paul launched a co-branded Rapha + Paul Smith collection of cycling clothes and accessories.

Building over two seasons, the collection features products that are inspired by road racing and designed specifically for city riding.
