To outline the design and inspiration behind the collection – commuters who switch seamlessly between the bike, public transportation and on foot – Rapha Creative Director Alex Valdman will host special Today at Apple sessions around the world later this year.

“We approached this project by focusing on precision, quality and problem-solving, and empathizing with the commuter whose journey is 4 miles or 40 miles,” explained Valdman. “We worked with one of the best mills in Italy to source the most beautifully durable twills and with a master craftsman in London and Portugal on endless iterations. Creating these unique products was no easy task as thousands of hours were spent developing, prototyping and testing, with iPad Pro and Apple Pencil acting as our primary design tools. What has resulted are products that I feel embody Rapha’s design values.”
