Last week we headed to the Andalusian capital of Sevilla, chasing summer sun in early February to shoot part one of Vulpine’s spring/summer 2017 collection. Although we did receive a smattering of rain on our first day in the city, for the rest of our short time there we were blessed with blue skies and warm rays. Ahead of the launch, we wanted to share with you our favourite spots and discoveries in beautiful Sevilla – and keep an eye out for some sneak peaks of the collection too!
Berlin. Not one of the traditional European cycling capitals like Amsterdam & Copenhagen, but a city with a growing cycling culture and reputation as one of the urban cycling hubs of Europe. I’m not sure I’ve come across any other city with such a proliferation of cycle cafes and unique bike shops, such as Standert, Keirin, Cicli Berlinetta and Steel Vintage to name just a few; which are all contributing to making this city a cyclists paradise, along with world class cycling events like the Berliner Fahrradschau.
Christmas is a magical (if somewhat manic) time of the year in London, and if you’re heading to the city for shopping or visiting family & friends, here’s a guide for you. With the launch of our Luxury Winter collection, we took the outfits for a road test: spending a day treating ourselves (it’s nearly Christmas after all!) to our favourite bits of ‘posh London’. Belt up your Cycling Trenchcoat (or Mac), throw on a Silk Scarf and pedal into town for a very luxurious Vulpine day out in London.
It’s a tricky dilemma, trying to shoot winter gear in August. Especially when one of the garments in question is the Beacon Jacket, a deep winter road cycling jacket for extreme weather. It’s not going to look quite right paired with thermal bib tights and a merino polo baselayer, in the lush green Surrey hills on a baking summer’s day.
From Treviso to London, via Amsterdam: Vulpine’s designer Eloise heads to one of Europe’s cycling capitals for her new bike day.
In this conclusion to our Budapest series, I’ll be giving you all the details of how the trip came together, as well as sharing a few of my own images and final thoughts. We had an amazing time exploring this beautiful and vibrant city, as well as the surrounding hills, and would highly recommend it as a cycling destination!
Part two of our Budapest trip guides. (See part one, exploring the city here) We had just one full day on our three day visit to Hungary, so wanted to make the most of this to head out of Budapest to see what lay in the surrounding countryside, searching for hills and testing out our Hoy Vulpine road kit.

With spring blooming into summer across Europe, we set off to explore somewhere a bit different. Hungary’s beautiful capital Budapest provided the perfect base to cycle city and country. As it turned out, some unpredictable Hungarian weather gave us the opportunity to test out our kit in every condition; from baking sun to thunderstorms, on city tarmac, country roads, and gravel paths…which transformed into total mud baths.
For the launch of the exclusive Hoy Vulpine Palmarès Jersey and Cap to honour Sir Chris Hoy’s achievements on the track, Vulpine travelled up to Glasgow for a photoshoot with Chris himself at the most appropriate location we could think of; the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome.
