Le “Velo” Bike by Pharrell Williams for Domeau & Pérès

The much anticipated “Velo” bike by Pharrell Williams for Domeau & Pérès has been released today. 26 colors, each limited to only 1.

“The idea came in 2009 after a visit to the Brooklyn Machine Works shop by Pharrell, Bruno Domeau & Philippe Pérès : the bicycle’s frame and fork are hand made out at the Brooklyn Machine workshop of 4130 chromemoly seamless airplane grade steel tubing.

After that, the bike is shipped to Domeau & Pérès in Paris where it’s upholstered in fine leather of water buffalo. All the stitching work is handmade : it takes them over 100 man hours.

Bikes are available in a variety of 26 colors, but each color is an edition of one and once purchased that color choice will no longer be available.”

You can order yours today from colette (storeguide) at eshop@colette.fr, and 8 weeks later the bike arrives. Unfortunately the bike has a 20’000 Euro price tag.
