HISTORY why it all beagn?

A young man stands before a hotel and waits in the rain, in his hand he holds a camera. After a number of hours it becomes obvious why he has waited for so long. The most dominant racing cyclist of all times, Eddy Merckx, steps out of the hotel, he not only allows himself to be photographed, but gives the camera foting, dripping wet fan his cap. 

From this young man developed the esteemed sport and fashion photographer Kal Stuht von Neupauer. His name is not only synonymous with photography, but also with his business, Starshot, which has also gained notoriety through it's superb design department. The newest coup to leave the design studio is the Starshot Cap", which is produced in the style of the original Eddy Merckx cap but with Starshot authenticity. One who expects a "retro-copy", will be surprised, only the shape is taken over from the old cap, many innovative elements were added. From a design perspective each of these elements are impressive enough in their own right, let alone combined in the final product. All patterns are glued or sewn on and work together with the materials of the cap to produce a feeling of "old-fashioned" quality when held. Appropriately for a cycling hat, a dedicated Tour de France limited Edition cap, Le Tour", has been produced. This limited edition cap evokes the style and emotion which an event like this deserves.

A fawn stands in a forest clearing grazing peacefully. From a distance there is the sound of two mountain-bikers. The fawn listens, its hairy ears locate the source of the noise: The buzzing of the free wheeling mechanism, suspension struts, the puffing of breath. The dear fawn listens carefully. Then it lowers its head and continues grazing. The bikes have now reached the clearing. The dear sees the biker. It stands frozen. Then it goes blind. 

Yet again these bikers wore the typical bike-jerseys that seem to have been designed in the eighties. Or worse: in a pseudo-team apparel look. For over twenty years now biker have terrorized animals in nature or its peripheral areas such as country highways with their vivid and tastless choice of jerseys. Not even members of the own species are safe, of course: Even serious managers and
dynamic family fathers riding on 3000-Euro-state-of-the-art-bikes wear apparel that one must seriously doubt their colour perception and aesthetic senses; Or couples that suffer from a common tastelessness in fluorescent jerseys and ride through the woods represent a serious threat to nature and endanger forest animals. In short: whether road or mountain biking, bike-jerseys, very few exceptions aside, are colour and design-catastrophes. This had to change! 

A scene like the one on the forest clearing was one day witnessed by two Starshot designers (why they had been there is not the issue here). A few days later in the Starshot kitchen the issue was brought up, discussed and a common objective was formulated. Man and animal must not suffer any more from unloving bike-apparel designl Bike riding should be agreeable for nature again, as it once was intended. On that day Starshot started to design bike-jerseys and soon teamed up with the knights from GROFA to fight the good cause, the aestheticication of bike apparel.

The Starshot Bike jersey collection represents the aestheticisat on of bike apparel. There are two lines, one functional jersey line and one retro-line which in fact is a re-interpretation of historic wool jerseys. Both lines, as expected from Starshot, show a love for details fashionable patterns and icons, embroideries and fillgree badges and fake printing. With the retro jerseys metal rivets and buttons made of mother of-pearl are some of those details. Pockets are placed where they had been on the original jerseys from the twenties and fifties in the kidney area- and on some pieces presented later - in the upper stomach area (in those days competitive bike rides had to carry their tubes, tools and even provisions over long distances by themselves). Doing something positive to the environment has never been so stylish.
