VanMoof and Hiroshi Fujiwara drop Fragment Design collaboration
The limited edition e-bike is available exclusively at Dover Street Market London via online raffle.
October 13, London – Legendary Japanese streetwear designer and founder of the fashion label Fragment Design has teamed up with Dutch e-bike pioneers VanMoof to release a limited edition e-bike. A limited number of e-bikes is part of a new Fragment Design capsule collection, launching today at Dover Street Market London. Available via an online raffle on the e-shop.
Limited edition design
The VanMoof x Fragment Design S3 e-bikes feature the minimalist, cool and crisp execution Hiroshi Fujiwara is famed for. An all-black frame with the Japanese streetwear label’s signature lightning logo sits alongside Dover Street Market’s emblematic watermark. Race stripes and large lettering on the bikes’ downtubes boldly identify the collaboration, which is limited to only a small number of bespoke e-bikes. A deeper shade of glossy black gently darkens the iconic frame of the Dutch manufacturer’s signature VanMoof S3 model.
The bike is equipped with the same technologies that have forged the reputation of the Dutch manufacturer with a powerful motor, revamped Turbo Boost for instant acceleration, automatic electronic gear shifting, integrated hydraulic brakes, a keyless Kick Lock, and signature anti-theft tech.
The latest collaboration with Fragments Design follows the successful limited-edition e-bikes VanMoof created over the last years with names like Jacquemus, Highsnobiety, Eike König, Pigalle and L’art de l’automobile.
The VanMoof x Fragment Design e-bikes are priced at £2248, available exclusively at Dover Street Market London via online raffle.
