Amsterdam is an international hotspot for Creative Industries in advertising, fashion, design and culture.
One very hip difference noted immediately is how “Custom Cool” everyones bicycles are…showcasing their creative personalities.
From metallic gold, to neon yellow, spots and dots as well as print and pattern…..Amsterdam gives a new meaning to “your custom ride”!

Well I have to confess after my trip overseas…many of these bad boys were big enough for two persons!! Shape, fabric, detailing, substrate and color are all so unique!

I spotted FATBOY at Maison Objet in Paris.
Fatboy is an imaginative lifestyle brand that brings energizing comfort to the outdoors. With their newest collection that uses color and is design friendly, these original outdoor products are just what I needed to ‘chill’ for a while at Maison.
Talk about cozy comfort in style!
