Japanese culture is known for its eclectic mix of cutting-edge technology, quirky fashion with individual style, and deeply felt traditions, and luxury brand Cybex has drawn on all those influences for its new Koi Fashion Collection.
across the four products in the Cybex platinum range - the Priam travel
system, Mios compact stroller, Cloud Q car seat and Yema Tie baby
carrier, as well as the footmuff for both pushchairs - the striking Koi
design incorporates premium appliqués and embroidery on a unique
reflecting crystal silver fabric. The colourful fish and aquatic images
thus appear on a lightly shimmering surface to give an effect that is
both ornate and futuristic. This is a collection that will stand out
quietly from the crowd.
Taking inspiration from Japanese mythology, the Koi design represents calmness, crystallisation, strength and happiness. Who doesn't feel a sense of peace beside tranquil, sparkling water with a hint of flitting, fluid movement? The team at Cybex has added ideas from the latest catwalk trends, along with state-of-the-art materials and tailoring, to create a harmonious blend of classic and contemporary, the natural world and modern urban living.For parents who want high performance on safety, comfort and ease of use, but that little something extra too, the Koi Fashion Collection certainly adds a new depth of wow-factor to Cybex's existing premium products.
The Priam is already known for its gorgeous designer-influenced appearance, which comes with an array of interesting additional touches and accessories, and - crucially - no compromise on its everyday functionality. The stylish black and chrome frame forms the base for a handy 3-in-1 travel system, to be used with the matching carrycot, a Cybex infant car seat or a world or parent-facing pushchair.
It offers all-round suspension with a choice of Light, All Terrain and Trekking wheel options, and even has a two-wheel mode, useful for navigating stairs and sand. With four recline positions, including lie-flat, an extremely generous extendable sun canopy, one-handed fold, a nifty open-either-side rotating bumper bar and deluxe leather-like finishes, the Priam ticks all those practical boxes and more. Its clever highchair function ensures the seat in perfectly aligned with average table height, too, so you can dine out as a family with ease.

The Mios is a luxury pushchair with personality and style. Just 50cm wide, it's made to nip around town with ease, negotiating busy streets and shops, and hopping on and off public transport, without sacrificing any of its premium features.
Suitable from birth with a matching carrycot or the stroller seat's lie-flat recline option, the seat unit can be switched from world to parent-facing in seconds, and the chassis can also take an infant car seat with the use of adaptors. The Mios provides all-wheel suspension, a height-adjustable handle with a premium leather-look finish and a breathable mesh seat fabric with an inlay for colder weather, ensuring comfort for passenger and driver!
