key color found within the Maison Jules fall line. Each of the 151 custom
Martone bikes will be awarded to one lucky winner per store through an in

contest conducted via Instagram in September, in which one grand prize winner
will be awarded a trip to Paris, a "Maison Jules X Martone" bike, and a Maison
Jules wardrobe valued at $500.

"We are thrilled to collaborate with Maison Jules, and created a bike that
became an accessory for this girl: fashionable but dynamic, bold but
feminine," says Martone Cycling Company's founder, Lorenzo Martone. "We
believe in individuality and that everyone has a creative vein, so we are
looking forward to seeing the results of Macy's Instagram contest, and want to
wish luck to all of the participants."
