While riding his bike in 2012, designer Mike Cherman was hit by a car. This cloud had a silver lining however and the accident ended up serving as the inspiration behind ICNY. The concept behind the label was to design functional and stylish athletic clothing that provided additional safety and increased visibility. Using reflective materials in strategic positions, ICNY’s apparel provides cyclists, runners and pedestrians with safe, street smart clothing that is practical and fashionable.
