Fashionoffice cycling tip for darker days: reflective angel wings cape for children on rollers and bikes
...seen at the current range of the design products online marketplace In-Spaces.com (ships globally). The basic concept for the Angel Wings Cape (on view at this page) was developed by British designer Sara Henrichs already during her time as student. The angel wings are for children and followed the 'Henrichs Cape' for women made from reflective Schoeller Textiles; glass fibres make the wind-, oil, and waterproof cycling accessories glow when there is no light. Bikecitizens.com reports that Sara Henrichs motivation to design such capes grew with her experience of today's huge traffic on streets. But it's not only the traffic; in autumn and winter, the days are shorter while the dark morning and evening hours last longer which diminishes the visibility of people on streets - whether they are walking, rolling, cycling to school, work or to the supermarket.
