Sven Cycles Presents Rouge Noir

View all 5 Photos

Sven Cycles, a bike workshop in Dorset, England, recently built a classic Reynolds roadster inspired by “Rouge Noir,” one of Chanel’s most famous nail lacquers. The sanguine color has been a name in fashion since its release in the 1990s, and, although it was discontinued for a time, it lives on today, re-released as “Vamp” red. Sven Cycle’s homage design is painted to match, and its caramel-colored accents finish off the polished look.
