Lacoste Helmet Concept - A helmet that blends in with street fashion and suits the task of a leisurely ride around town, running errands or commuting. I hoped to accomplish this by making use of natural materials such as cork, and of textiles which are less technical and instead are influenced by millinery and traditional helmet construction. I sought to use a limited number of materials and combined them in a way that would allow the helmet to be easily recycled or composted at the end of the helmet's service.
