Helmet Chic

It's fashion week in Milan this week, and well I was struck by a few images I came across.

Only Italian women (and maybe French women) could make a helmet look tres chic. Never in a million years would I look this fashionable in protective gear. Milan must be the city with the most motorbikes per capita so I guess it's just part of the culture to make a statement with your helmet.

Um, hello. A bright yellow skirt and a helmet to match. Do you think they buy helmets like accessories to match outfits? And driving in wedge heels to boot.

More lovely yellow in New York.

Unfortunately, I think I will be channeling more from Harry and Lloyd than their Italian counterparts. "I get 70 miles per gallon on this hog"
