The Coppi Collection

www.rapha.cc

Fausto Coppi (1919-1960) was one of the greatest cyclists of all time. Beloved by fans and fellow riders alike, the man from Piedmont, Italy, became known as Il Campionissimo – Champion of Champions. Coppi’s achievements were numerous. He remains one of the most decorated cyclists of all time and his palmares set new standards for the sport. For the 100th edition of the Italian grand tour, Rapha has created a stylish, luxurious range of on-and off-bike clothing and accessories to commemorate Italy’s most stylish sportsman and the golden age of Italian cycling. Using similar manufacturing and stitching techniques to the jerseys worn in the 1960’s, the collection pays tribute to the styles of the time. The design, patterns and details of each piece reflect different aspects of Coppi’s style and victories, drawing inspiration from glorious summit wins and his signature sartorial style. From lightweight and technical cycling attire to a full merino tracksuit, the range covers every aspect of a cyclist’s life on and off the bike.
