Remember the Chanel Bicycle...? Oh, and summer scarves.

Oh how the Chanel bike made me want to cycle. I considered selling a family member into the slave trade to purchase said bike (I won't disclose which person from my family because that would be in bad taste). I planned whole outfits around the great love affair this bicycle and I were going to star in. Alas though, it was not to be and I locked my feelings into a tiny box and shoved them under the bed, never to be seen or heard of again. Or so I thought, until this...

Comptoir Des Cotonniers are launching their own bicycle range this summer! And it is even better than Chanel's because it includes a tandem bike (£1284). My dreams are suddenly being resurrected, only this time I'm taking Phoebe with me and my cat Dave in the basket. ROAD TRIP!

This of course means I now need to purchase the season's much appraised accessory 'the summer scarf'. What biking outfit would be complete without it? I've been holding out so far, but I can picture it vividly, billowing in the breeze majestically while we pedal down a lavender scented country road. Orrrr, it smacking Phoebe in the face repeatedly while drivers *shake* their fists in anger at us on Oxford Street. Both options work for me, and mean no end to my summer fun. If I can hold out till payday, I am hankering for this one from Hermes *dribble*, although realistically it will be a trip to All Saints (I know, I know, but their accessories are really rather good these days) for this one.

So there you have it, summer scarves and tandem bikes, 2008 summer must-haves.
