FIFO X CINELLI BESPOKE CAP RED GOLD
For our second collaboration with the Brooklyn based artisan cap producer Fifo Cycle we pay tribute the gold medal winning Soviet Cycling team on the Cinelli Laser at the 1988 Seoul Olympic Games.
"At the 1988 Seoul Summer Games the Soviet Cycling Team took home 4 medals on the Laser. Both the team and the bike that took them to victory inspire our color concept for this." says Fiona Ryan, owner and designer for Fifo Cycle. "For the graphic style we were influenced by Futurismo Italiano, using layered gradients and the illusion of light coming from behind or underneath. The Russian riders are depicted in silhouette on the front panel and the iconic Cinelli logo takes various forms around the rest of the cap. The reverse side is subtle blues with cyrillic text from a commemorative poster issued by Cinelli after the games."
This fully reversible lightweight cap is made from 100% cotton with a memory foam in the brim and a soft chambray for the reverse side. The piece was screen-printed by hand before being cut and sewn. It can be machine washed but should be air-dried to keep it looking it's best.
One size fits most: 21"-24"
This is a very limited run (200 hats made in total) and each hat is numbered.
