Collaborating with the distinguished CR
Fashion Book, we created a unique MATE X in a stunning, handmade
colorway to mark the 19th issue of the magazine labelled ‘Parade.’ To
maintain exclusivity there will be 50 bikes only.
As the first-ever brand collaboration for CR Fashion Book, we are fittingly taking biking culture to couture and the rest of the world.
In addition, two bikes from the collection will be autographed by various celebrities, influencers, and friends of CR and tour the Paris Fashion Week for the Spring/Summer and Cannes Film Festival of 2022. It has already completed its first leg of the tour at the Paris Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2021. At the end of the tour, it will be auctioned at AmfAR, with proceeds donated to a charity.
The edition is made on a base color of
deep black with subtle sparkles and original, hand-drawn artwork in
silver – including unique CR and MATE branding. In addition, it is made
with an innovative print technique that offers all-around and seamless
frame printing, an exceptional and rare artistic appearance that matches
its exclusivity. This edition is truly a collector’s item.
CR Fashion Book
is a magazine created by the legendary fashion editor Carine Roitfeld.
It is based on the idea of shining the light on fashion’s rising stars.
Edited to be the who’s who of the next generation by Roitfeld herself,
it is also an ode to legends and icons from the fashion universe.
Started in 2013, it soon became the
bible of inspiration. It is known for being the platform for bold
styling, creative photography and impressive words from the most celebrated creators in fashion, art, and culture, and a new guard of exciting talent.
Known for its fast, flexible, head-turning effect and iconic, sleek design. It’s not just a bike – it’s a vehicle of expression.
The CR Parade issue bridges high
fashion with high performance, making it a perfect fit for MATE. We always strive to present self-expression with style and excellence, making this collaboration grand.
