It’s been a busy summer here as always, and now that we’ve had a decent few weeks of actually summery weather, even busier than usual. Amidst the raft of work and summer hijinks, I’ve enjoyed reviewing all these warm-weather vélocouture contributions. Bicycling in summer really helps you appreciate the sensible, airy fabrics like seersucker and linen, which were, of course, summer necessaries before everything became air-conditioned and hermetically sealed.

Herewith our favorites of all the fantastic contributions to the Vélocouture group in June and July. Nice to see you all out there.
