Riccardo Tisci’s 2011 spring collection for Givenchy takes on a hint of gothic culture. Most of the Givenchy 2011 Spring collection is dark in color with leopard print highlights.
Models where kept wearing light complected makeup, which contrasted their dark painted lips. Black or close to white hair was the consistent hair color worn by Gavenchy models.
Zippers that ran down pants, sleeves and waistlines added a punk feel to many of the pieces within the 2011 Givenchy spring collection.
Tisci also added thin layers on models, giving them a ghostly feel–seems fitting seeing how Halloween is just around the corner.
In some cases, fashion and cycling do not mix well. For example, helmets can leave your hair looking a mess. That and they’re not the most trendiest head accessory out there. This is where designers Anna Haupt and Terese Alstin came together to design the Hövding “Chieftain” helmet.
The Chieftain Hövding Helmet is essentially a collar with a folded airbag. In the case of an accident, the Chieftain helmet uses a gas generator to fill the airbag. This happens when your head enters an abnormal movement. The airbag can also be removed and stored inside the collar.
For the past six years, the designer studied the different types of bicycle accidents by connecting sensors to dummies in order to ensure the airbag does not accidentally fill up out of the blue.
Six LED lights are hidden within the collar to monitor the sensor. When the battery is low, you can connect the helmet to a USB port for charging. Once connected the software within the helmet will automatically update.
What are your thoughts—is the Chieftain Hövding Helmet a fashionable alternative to your standard bicycle helmet?
