After working with Martin Margiela, Ruby Helmets founder Jéròme Coste joins foces with Karl Lagerfeld delivering helmets as fashionable as they possibly can be and this at almost affordable prices.
For the fourth programme of signature limited editions by Les Ateliers Ruby, the helmet company is joining forces with the Karl Lagerfeld brand to inaugurate its "multiples": collectors' helmets in editions of 12. The coming together of Les Ateliers Ruby founder Jéròme Coste and Karl Lagerfeld led to the creation of the motorcycle helmets featured in the Karl Lagerfeld autumn/winter 2009-2010 collection. Motorcycles are now an integral part of the modern urban landscape and the helmet has thus become a new and indispensable accessory Karl Lagerfeld has taken it over and made it into a fashion accessory.
