    Ruby x Ill Studio: Venecia Castel (Detail)

Ill Studio create supercool motorbike helmets in collaboration with Ruby

Posted by Rob Alderson,

A corollary of the triumphant return of Daft Punk – which has dominated the cultural scene for what seems like weeks now – is a lavishing of attention on the humble helmet. And as if to prove that it’s not just their music-making compatriots who understand the power and the glory of this kind of headwear, Paris-based Ill Studio have collaborated with high-end motorbike helmet makers Ruby to create this super limited edition series. Ill created a bespoke pattern for the range called Venecia, “echoing the works of redesign and ornamentation by post modernist artists from the beginning of the 1980s such as Alessandro Mendini or Robert Venturi.” Stylish, restrained and undeniably hyper-cool, let’s have three huzzahs for helmets and all who wear them!
