James Perse Cruiser
Los Angeles-based designer James Perse, known amongst fashion circles as a Hollywood institution, has put his unique brand of simple sophistication on the ubiquitous beach-cruiser. A staple in sun-drenched Southern California, the beach cruiser beautifully delivers form and function with fat tires that can take on any terrain and a wide-style handlebar and positioning that lets you look effortlessly cool. Perse’s take on the cruiser strips the body down to the basics and gives it a sexy matte coat and finishes it off with hand-aged leather seat and grips.
The pretty bike does come with an equally pretty price tag; each custom made Perse Cruiser will set you back $2500. You can order a bike through their online shop, or visiting their newly-opened shop in Los Angeles.
[ Editors note: If your a little crafty, you could always make a surprisingly similar version of the Perse Cruiser by snatching this Felt BIke for about a quarter of the price and slapping a fresh coat of paint to rid the beautiful frame of those hideous graphics ]
