Shop It Now: Bike-Friendly Clothing by Iva Jean

This post was written by guest contributor Jess Chamberlain, a Seattle-based writer whose love of good design is second only to her passion for environmentally friendly—and locavore—living. Look for her #MadeInAmerica posts all month on our blog.

Seattle talent Ann DeOtte Kaufman is redefining the "urban cyclist." Kaufman is bringing bikers to the runway while kicking spandex to the curb with her line of bike-friendly womenswear, Iva Jean, launched through a crazy-successful Kickstarter campaign earlier this year.

Her first collection includes a
rain cape, skirt, reflective vest, and blouse (my personal favorite), all designed for flexibility and style—so you can bike to work without looking like you're dressed for the Tour de France! (And everything's made right here in the Emerald City.) The Iva Jean tagline says it all: Bike Everywear.

You can preview the new Iva Jean video here, in which Kaufman demonstrates the features of each design in the collection. The genius: Even if you don't bike to work—or even have a bike—you'll want these pieces. Oh, and don't miss Kaufman's blog about bike fashion around the world. (And if you're a Seattle local, see her favorite urban rides here.)
