Summer 2020 Newsletter
Summer at last!
More than ever before we welcome the warmer and longer days that only summer gifts us. After these few trying months, we’re longing for the outdoors, where Mother Nature provides some much needed calm and social distancing is easier.

We’ve put together a collection of pandemic-friendly products to help keep you safe and glam while enjoying some fun under the sun. Thank you for continuing to follow our journey, it’s a real privilege to share our updates with you.
PANDEMIC FRIENDLY PRODUCTS
MotoChic Face Masks
Using cloth face coverings are a critical preventive measure to help slow the spread of COVID-19 when combined with social distancing in public settings. How to wear it correctly? The CDC website thoroughly explains best practices.
MotoChic 3-ply cloth masks are our newest, hottest accessory enabling you to “face” social distancing in style. Available in four different print designs, you can mix and match your favorites and always have one to wear while one is in the wash!
MotoAngels™ Antimicrobial Tops
According to medical experts, viruses can remain viable on clothing for several hours. Made from 100% cotton fabric treated with an antimicrobial agent that “mechanically” destroys 99.9% of germs including odor-causing bacteria, fungi, and mold, our MotoAngels tees, and tanks offer added protection for your active summer lifestyle. Check out our capsule collection of MotoAngels™ tops, some even have heavenly features such as glow-in-the-dark designs to let the world know that two wheels are your wings!
MotoChic Lauren Bag
Getting out in the wilderness is a great way to practice self-care while distancing yourself from crowds. When Michelle plans a day away, she always carries her Lauren.
“Hiking definitely fits this bill, as it not only provides great exercise (which helps to relieve stress too), but it is a great way to spend time alone in nature. Whether you’re headed out for a short out walk or on a long trail, definitely consider bringing a daypack that can carry all your hiking essentials (water bottle, snacks, cell phone, wallet, bug spray, towel, first aid kit, etc), keep you staying organized and ready for anything.”
The Lauren is your go-to bag— enabling you to be ready for any adventure without having to choose between fashion and function.

YOUR STORIES – WHAT’S IN YOUR BAG
Our featured customer story shows just how versatile the Lauren convertible bag is if you need to juggle work, sports and leisure all in the course of the same day. As a young girl, Keyla’s didn’t dream of dollhouses, but she had her eyes set on quite a different object. It was love at first sight.
“My name is Keyla and I am a motorcycle enthusiast. I grew up in a small town in Puerto Rico where my uncle had a motorcycle which I was prohibited as a kid to ever get on by my dad. I always told myself when I grow up, I am going to have my own. Years later, here I am riding my own motorcycle.
I work as a Legal Assistant to a Senior Partner at a law firm and was looking for a bag that looked the part professionally but is also comfortable for my daily commute. I browsed the internet until I found the Lauren bag. The red and the motorcycle textile inside sold me. The Lauren bag is more than just a bag; it’s part of my daily travel and life. Things I carry: professional attire; dressy shoes, workout clothes, breakfast, lunch, makeup bag.
I love how versatile it can be, and how it carries so much without sacrificing my back. I use it to commute to and from work, the gym, and even the beach with style and comfort. I have been caught in extremely severe rain and the rain protection cover has kept everything in my bag dry. At night the reflective panels are an added feature to my safety.
When asked what’s a good quality motorcycle bag? I always recommend the Lauren bag.”
Not even a pandemic can stop MotoChic from making the news!
