We saw indications of the potential bike shorts fad on several different runways, but I think it’s safe to say that the fad is here.

The gallery features a Fall 08 piece from Miu Miu, Spring 09 pieces from Micheal Kors and Abaete, Pre-Fall 09 pieces from Alexander Wang and a resort 09 piece from Prada. Stats for Classy Cyclist Couture Trending: Older & Chilly
