Check Stripes designed by Alexander Girard, 1972
Rapha has partnered with iconic design house Herman Miller to produce series of limited edition caps, featuring designs from the Alexander Girard archives.
Founded in 1905, Herman Miller went on to nurture the talents of designers Charles and Ray Eames and Alexander Girard among others, becoming the leading manufacturer of timeless modern design. From 1951 to 1973, designer Alexander Girard served as the head of the Herman Miller Textile Division, designing over three hundred textiles in multiple colourways.
The nine patterns of this Rapha cap collection represent designs from each decade of Girard’s esteemed career with Herman Miller. One cap will be revealed each day alongside the race.
