It was love at first sight! From my first ride at age 7, I was in love with cycling. After a lifetime of recreational cycling and 2 years cycling professionally, it is still my passion today. The connection between my love for cycling and my experience in the fashion industry inspired what I now dedicate my time to – MYN.
MYN was born as a cycling collection designed for women by women. As a female cyclist, I have always searched for cycling kits that are feminine without forfeiting all the technical aspects of cycling gear. But in a cycling market dominated by men, I found few choices. The typical option was a short-sleeved jersey colored in pink. Tired of adapting myself to gear not designed for me, I set out to design it myself.
I launched MYN – Mind Your Nature –in 2013 after extensively researching and testing items with a team of ex-professional women cyclists. The line’s quality and unique style quickly gained attention. But what took our team by surprise were the requests by male cyclists and athletes in general; they wanted a line of similar quality with fashionable sophistication. What started as a hobby later became a challenge as we poured the same care, testing, and quality of material into developing an elegant cycling line for men followed by lines for yoga and gym wear.Designed and produced in Italy with a passion for style, we use only high-quality materials that are breathable, quick drying, and are designed for intense workouts. Our goal is to create technical sportswear that makes athletes look as fashionable in their sports attire as they do out on the town. With MYN, technical function is not lost at the expense of fashion.
