The fashion industry has always known that curves look simply stunning in black - best accentuated, of course, by accessories that sparkle and shine when they catch the light! Now the egg® stroller, the pushchair with the most iconic curves on the pavement, is available in a new Shadow Black edition that delivers that magical combination.
The egg® already comes in an impressive array of chassis and fabric finishes, from the all-out decadence of the gold Hollywood edition to the uber-smart weave of the Quantum Grey with co-ordinating Gun Metal frame and the luxury reptile-effect textures of the Jurassic Black and Jurassic Cream - but the Shadow Black edition has a star quality of its own.
The new tinted chrome chassis gleams bright under lights but has a beautiful depth to it, and the wheels have been toned to match, emphasising that touch of class in every last detail. As we expect from egg®, the handle and bumper bar are the (Champagne-soaked) cherry on top, finished in softened hand-stitched leatherette - this time in a gently shimmering metallic hue that is truly gorgeous.
Those alluring hints of glitz and glamour are balanced by the fabrics, which have been created in a soft, chic, matte black satin that feels as irresistible as it looks. The make-up of the material is similar to the extremely popular egg® Espresso, with the piping on the Shadow Black edition a complementary silver-grey that perfectly highlights the stroller's distinctive shape and flowing lines.
Within this stylish package is all the premium engineering and practical detail that the egg® has become famous for since its launch in April 2015. Every element has been designed to combine comfort for your little one with ease of use for you. The wheels boast exclusive Tru-Ride technology, which offer great suspension and a smooth ride. The pushchair is simple to push and fold one-handed, and the chassis is compact, self-locking and freestanding once folded, making it easier to transport wherever family life takes you.
The toe-saving push-on, push-off brake mechanism and hidden storage compartment in the footrest are wonderful parent-friendly additions that epitomise the care that has gone into every last aspect of the egg®. And the show-stopping looks come as standard.
The egg® has six different variations in tandem mode to meet the needs of your growing family at every stage, and a carrycot has been created in Shadow Black to give total harmony to your set-up, whichever configuration you choose. This delivers the same level of detail as the stroller seat, down to the golden shimmer of the leatherette carry handle - and, of course, the curves of the chassis, seat frame and hood are mirrored in the carrycot and apron.
Also available with this new edition is a soft and opulent cream fur liner with a clever reversible design, and a deluxe Shadow Black changing bag that wouldn't look out of place if you unclipped the satchel strap, swapped nappies and baby wipes for mascara and heels, and slipped it over your shoulder for a night out.
The egg® Shadow Black is the LBD of the pushchair world - eternally on-trend and super versatile, ready for every occasion and every season, classically elegant with just enough wow-factor to make a statement.
Priced at £769, the Shadow Black edition is available from February 2018.
