Stylish Gear for Cyclists

Capitol Hill-based designer puts performance wear on the fashion map.
FROM THE PRINT EDITION |
 
 

Fresh off a successful Kickstarter campaign, Capitol Hill–based cyclist and former marketing professional Ann DeOtte aims to put performance wear on the fashion map. The three-piece spring collection for her line Iva Jean (ivajean.com) includes a black skirt ($160), with a stretchy Lycra/polyester fabric that resists fading, moisture and abrasion, and a pleat that gives 12 more inches of movement when unzipped. Also new: a sleek heather gray organic cotton blouse ($80) with a roomy cut and an asymmetrical hemline, and an ingenious reflective vest ($130), with magnetic closure and a cord pull to cinch it into a peplum. “I want women to feel great about themselves,” DeOtte says. “I want them to feel the joy, fearlessness and playfulness of bike riding.”
