Lexi Miller, the persona and the body of work, is the synthesis of daydreams stoked by thousands of pedal strokes along beautiful roads from the California coast to the Volcanoes of Chile.
Lexi Miller came to life when an interior designer fell in love with cycling: the new found freedom, the satisfaction of climbing hills, the awe inspired by gorgeous vistas, and the thrill of whipping descents. But every ride was slightly soured by the disappointment of riding in clothes that were …”eh”. They didn’t fit quite right, the textiles felt cheap and scratchy, and too many jerseys were stamped with garish logos, girly flowers, and amorphous swirly designs meant to designate…what, exactly?
Certain that these feelings were not unique to her experience and unwilling to accept the market’s offerings as the best possible option, frustration led her to become an apparel designer.
Lexi Miller represents that get-it-done part of ourselves, and the refusal to accept a reality that falls short of what we know is possible. Lexi Miller is athletic, sophisticated, discerning about design and fashion, and she likes to ride a bike. She appreciates clothes that fit and flatter her body without sacrificing function. She does not want to be a billboard for a corporation. She speaks for herself. She is feminine, not “girly”. She doesn’t mind working up a hard earned sweat or getting dirty, but she is equally fond of any occasion that necessitates a pair of heels, some makeup and a cute dress. We hope that the story of Lexi Miller resonates with that little fire inside of you, or maybe helps you to find it.
