The cycling cap, or casquette, has become a symbolic preform. Adorned with graphic insignia and branding, these cotton accoutrements have become infused with historic significance and values such as tradition.
This limited edition print covers many of the classic teams and trade marks, every bit as famous as the cyclists who have worn them. From Molteni to Faema, Bianchi Piaggio to Colnago, colour form and style fuse to form iconic moments from yesteryear.
