Lacoste Helmet Concept


Lacoste Helmet Concept
Originally uploaded by KyleF

Originally the helmet was designed with urban female users in mind. After receiving ecstatic feedback from both genders, I believe that it can be successfully considered a unisex helmet.

For more information about the project and the process please check out my Flickr photo stream set here http://www.flickr.com/photos/kylef/2552056274/in/set-72157603146219698/ , or email me for portfolio samples Kyle.j.ferguson@gmail.com I would like to hear from you either way.

The helmet was also cecently was featured on Channel M Vancouver, along with some other great student work from Emily Carr University check out the clip here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lu567H0nQLM&feature=related .

Also take a look at the Safety Is Sexy Campagn for some older posts about this project http://safetyissexy.blogspot.com/.

I like this idea.
More casual and functional.

Giro did the Fat Hats in the 90's but they flopped. IT would be nice to see something that is appealing to those who want to wear a helmet but are not too keen on looking like they are a tour de france wanna be.

This is a really cool looking helmet and a great idea! A more casual and stylish looking helmet is a great idea and making it more of a fashion accessory would probably make it less of a hassle to wear! Great concept!

This is an amazing looking helmet. I Wish there were something that looked this good that had adequate ventilation for fast urban rides.
