H&M Debuts Line of Bike-Friendly Clothes
Swedish clothing mega brand H&M just announced a new apparel line tailored to cyclists. Designed in collaboration with London's Brick Lane Bikes, the collection includes jackets, pants, t-shirts, blazers, button-downs, and shorts. Pieces are tailored to fit the needs of cyclists—meaning longer jackets, taped seams, and vents—and feature water-repellent and breathable materials.

This eye-catching villa in the Netherlands, designed by Next Architects, proves that you can go big and go home as well. While some homes feature hints of color, the Villa van Vijven structure garners well-deserved attention thanks to its warm orange facade that is meant to mimic the tiled rooftops of Holland’s country buildings. The orange of the exterior also carries over into the communal entrance beneath the building, offset by natural elements such as stones adjacent to the entryway.
