Rapha has collaborated with Dublin-born fashion designer, Robyn Lynch, to create an up-cycled collection of apparel culled together with left-overs from the British brand’s past editions.
The 12-piece collection comprises a series of Paneled Jackets, multi-paneled hybrid knitted t-shirts and sweatshirts, as well as hybrid shorts – all of which are made from repurposed fabric and materials provided by Rapha.
“Rapha’s level of construction on all of its garments really fascinates me,” explains Lynch. “The team has specific pattern-cutting techniques which follow the form and function of a body when moving and cycling and these manipulation techniques are really interesting. The secret pockets for different functions are an inspiration to me when I am in the early stages of design and research.”
Most of the collection can be found on the website Farfetched, with prices ranging from £115 to £450.
