Yayoi Kusama for Louis Vuitton

Artist Yayoi Kusama

Welcome to the colorful, polka-dotted world of Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama. Already in 2012 Louis Vuitton released the collaboration with Yayoi Kusama and the artist’s signature bold spots are featured on every item of the collection. The collection includes a yellow drop-waisted dress with a frill skirt, cropped trousers with red and black dots; classic trench coats and beautiful silk scarves. Our co-founder Eva found one of the polka-dotted eye-catching scarves at a designer sale and got it because it matches the polka-dots on her bicycle.

Happy Holidays from the Allthatiwant Team

Thank you all for a wonderful year

It reinforced how fortunate we are to be able to work with people we love and to build our jobs around the things we are most passionate about: Fashion, Bikes and Technology. All of us here at Allthatiwant.com feel as if the past 365 days have flown by.

As in every company there were ups and downs, exciting moments but also sleepless nights and growing pains. But overall we had a blast! The team kept busy working on many exciting new product and company developments this past year: We added great new products to our shop, improved our website and services, and made smaller and bigger steps into the right direction with the right partners and additions to the team! And this needs to be celebrated!

We’re off for a few days to spend some time with our friends and families, eat good food, go on bike rides, eat more food and sleeeeep!

Ps: If you have questions regarding your order, simply email myorder@allthatiwant.com and someone will get back to you after Dec 28th … and everything else just needs to wait until 2016!

Thundress: Coochie-friendly Underwear

Coochie Friendly Underwear

 

Our mission is to find clothes that help you to feel beautiful in your (bike)life. Today we have a closer look at what you probably put on first thing every morning. Yes, that’s right! Today I’m getting in your pants.  …so let’s talk underwear. 

Laying the foundations:

Underwear is not something that many people think about on a regular basis, but they should: Because choosing the right underwear has major influence on your comfort level (just think about that annoying panty ride-up) and can even affect your health. How? Your underwear is the closest garment to our skin but most chemicals that are used to make, dye and clean fabric contain toxins. The chemicals in underwear fabric work pretty similar to a nicotine patch, that releases nicotine into the body through the skin, Tylea Richard – founder of coochie-friendly underwear brand Thundress explains. And when you ride your bike (and sweat) chemicals get absorbed to your body even quicker.

The solution: Non-toxic underwear

“What’s good for the chachas is what is good for the planet, and visa-versa! – Tylea Richard

Tylea is a true badass and I can confidently say: this is definitely not another green washing “ethical” product brand on the market, telling us to save the world by buying their product. I’ve known Tylea since we were working together for the same company and with Thundress she combines two of her biggest passions: women’s health and sustainable fashion. She truly lives what she’s talking about and in my opinion this project couldn’t be more authentic or more “her”.

Support Tylea and her team, share this project and learn more on Kickstarter:

 

More deets about Thundress:

100% organic cotton fabric. Gynecologists and your grandmother agree, 100% cotton underwear is the best fabric for your cooter. It’s breathable and less likely to cause irritation. Organic means less impact on the planet and on your poontang.

Chemical-free coochie. Thundress believes that your private parts should be a chemical-free zone. That’s why they use fiber-reactive dyes that are free of Azo and other toxic compounds. And the inside lining — the “snatch patch” —  is always made from unbleached and undyed 100% organic cotton.

Ethically made.  They partner with a factory in North Carolina for production. “We love the hyper-local supply chain (our fabric mill is in North Carolina too! ) plus, it gives us a chance to really get to know the people who are making our undies.”

Gravity Check: A new generation of lifestyle apparel

Life is a Ride Bike

 

The new collection by street wear and lifestyle brand Gravity Check just arrived in our shop! We’ve never been big fans of classic performance wear because for our taste the performance apparel lines on the market weren’t very fashion-conscious.

In the last few years we’ve seen retailers expand their sports and casual wear lines, influenced from the urban, street and sport scenes. Furthermore high end brands such as Stella Mc Cartney have increasingly referenced street and sports wear, giving rise to the success of the trend. But they just weren’t for us and there was always something missing. There was not just not the perfect combination of style, functionality, material, production and design.

But luckily we got introduces to the fine folks from Gravity Check. At Bike Expo New York 2015, pieces from the Gravity Check’s collection were chosen to be part of the Momentum Mag fashion show that showcased the best of urban bike style. And we were convinced! Not just by the pieces itself, also by their story, the brands personality and passion Gravity Check has for cycling and the love they put into creating their collection.

“Very few things engender passion and a sense of belonging to a tribe more than engaging in competitive sports. So it’s only natural for sports and fashion to intertwine.”

“We’ve seen it over and over again: the polo and yachting shirt that have become staples of the elegant leisure wardrobe; the explosion of street style, surfer-influenced T-shirts, Bermuda shorts and flip-flops; the colorful winter apparel that adorn the avid skier on the way to work, miles away from the slopes but still very much there. It’s a way of establishing an identity that says “this is the tribe that I belong to and want to be identified with. This is who I am.

But while our urban landscapes overflow with symbolic fashion adaptations of virtually every branch of sport, there is one that has been glaringly absent: Cycling.”

As bike enthusiast, we’re proud to be part of one of the fastest growing tribes in the world of sports whose popularity shows no sign of slowing down. And we’re proud to be able to work with cool brands from around the world and show products we really believe in on allthatiwant.com! So welcome to the family Gravity Check!

Notabag x BOOKMAN: The Reflective Bag available NOW!

Design Notabag Bookman

Notabag founder Adnan Alicusic was inspired to create the bag during a situation, where a shopping bag on his bike’s handle bar almost led to an accident. He found himself stuck between cars during rush hour and the shopping bag made the situation even worse by limiting his ability to control the bike. Wishing that he had a backpack with him, Adnan started to work on a simplified solution to transform a bag into a backpack.

After a successful 1st and 2nd collection our friends from Notabag teamed up with the swedish bike accessory company BOOKMAN to bring the Notabag to the next level in design and functionality.

The Reflective Bag

The bag is a smart combination of a bag and a backpack now made from reflective material. Just like the original classic collection, it quickly transforms from a bag into a backpack simply by pulling the straps.

The new design adds extra safety on the street by making cyclists, pedestrians, skaters, or pretty much anyone more visible in the dark. The Reflective Collection is only available for a limited amount of time! So don’t miss out!

Ps. The design is nominated for the German Design Award 2016! Fingers crossed!
