In an interesting new team-up, accessory designers Dee & Rickey got together with Mirraco last year and today we can show you the results of this unexpected, yet interesting collaboration. The look of the bike does not surprise us, knowing the style of the two designers, but it is certainly something one has rarely seen on a bike before.
“BMX and fashion aren’t normally used in the same sentence, but back in early 2011 Nigel Sylvester introduced Mirraco to fashion and accessory designers Dee & Ricky with the idea of collaborating to create a BMX bike that ignored the current style of bike graphics and instead, took a fresh approach.
Dee and Ricky had previously collaborated on an accessories line that incorporated a favorite childhood toy, Legos. They’ve been seen on celebrities such as Pharell Williams and Kanye West. The twin brothers then went on to collaborate with G-Shock to make their Lego inspired watch, and followed that up with a sneaker deal with Pony.
Their latest collaboration is with BMX icon Dave Mirra, where the brothers designed a limited production bike with a white frame, cheetah print seat, lime green chain and gold and pastel colored parts. A decal sheet with multi-colored letters is included so you can customize it to your liking. It’s their take on a fashionable way to avoid the hustle and bustle of NYC transit. Whether you love it or hate it, you have to admit it’s both stylish and unique.”
