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.
