Ateliers Ruby x Maison Martin Margiela

Friday, April 24, 2009 | |

Parisian designer Jérôme Coste founded Ruby to solve the conundrum of being both safe and sexy. His beautifully crafted retro-chic cycling helmets use a carbon shell that is borrowed from aerospace technology with a signature ruby red nappa lambskin lining inside. For their third collaboration from the "Signature" collection, Coste teamed up with avantgarde fashion darling Maison Martin Margiela to celebrate the Antwerp line's 20th Anniversary. Margiela and his colleagues at 163 Rue St-Maur took the program title literally and each person placed his signature on the helmet to create a collective work. This limited edition collection will be sold at Colette.
