we love grand-prix


We love Grand-Prix! The Grand-Prix is the wonderful design of an iconic cycling jersey of the Tour de France and worn by the leader of the «Classement Combiné» across the 70’s and 80’s. The jersey was a mix of the yellow jersey, the green jersey and the polka dot jersey. First introduced in 1968, the Italian FRANCO BITOSSI was the first winner, EDDY MERCKX worn the jersey five times in his career between 1969 and 1974, 1981 and 1982 with a new design, the jersey was worn by BERNARD HINAULT, 1985 and 1986 by GREG LEMOND. 1988 and 1989 the last cyclist to wear the Grand Prix jersey was the Dutch STEVEN ROOKS. The Grand Prix is the design we use this year for the new collection of silk foulard LEGGERA CARRÉ in the new dimensions: mm.450x450 and 900x900. Exclusively available at our online store  > > >
