IS IT POSSIBLE FOR A BIKER’S HELMET TO BE COOLER THAN THE MOTORCYCLE? Even in the ultimate biker movie, Easy Rider, Peter Fonda’s (Captain America) helmet is second fiddle to his magnificent chopper.

These motorcycle helmets were found… where else? Paris! At a shop called Collette.


Though I do not ride a motorcycle, I would buy one of these just to have it. I might just put one on a pedestal in my home. My favorite helmet of them all is the scrawled-on helmet called
“Les Ateliers Ruby x Maison Martin Margiela.” Can you imagine riding your new Vespa or classic 1963 Honda Bentley motorcycle with this baby on? Bitchin’!

From Wiki: “Martin Margiela was born in 1957 in Genk, Belgium, and is a Belgian fashion designer. He studied at Antwerp’s Royal Academy of Fine Arts along with the legendary avant garde fashion collective known as … “The Antwerp Six.” Many still consider him to be the “7th” member of the collective.”


“Throughout his career, Martin Margiela has maintained an extremely low profile. He has never had his picture taken and remains backstage after his shows. All media contact is dealt with via fax. Maison Martin Margiela’s ultra-discreet trademark consists of a piece of cloth with the numbers 0-23. The badge is attached to the inside with its four little white pick stitches, exposed to the outside on unlined garments.”
