Lady Harberton is a young french brand for elegant ladies on their bikes and Spin Cycling Festival will be the first time the brand presents its products to the UK market!
Lucile HAMOIGNON, the founder and designer of the bags, created Lady Harberton in 2015. At the end of the 19th century, Lady Harberton, or Florence Wallace Pomeroy, was one of the leaders committed to the women’s right to cycle (just as the suffragettes had been for the right to vote). As president of the Rational Dress Society, she was one of the first women to promote adapted clothing for cycling. At that time, cycling offered new freedoms that women never had before and contributed to their emancipation. The initials of the Lady Harberton are also the same initials of the founder of the brand Lucile Hamoignon.

The design process is inspired by female urban cyclists through research (discussions, interviews, observation) and prototype testing.
