Luxy Vespa Helmet is Functional and Stylish to Boot
October 8th, 2011
I adore my cousin, but his girlfriend, I’m not so crazy about. She’s a sweet girl and all, but not very practical. One thing that annoys me the most is how she rails on and on about having to wear a motorcycle helmet because she ends up with helmet-hair afterwards.
Well, I’d rather have bad hair than a bloody head, that’s for sure.
And I’d rather have bad hair with the Luxy Vespa Helmet on my head, too. It’s a helmet that’s designed specifically for women, what with its smooth curves, overall stylish look, and gorgeous color.
It was designed by Daniel Shih-Tung Chang of the Art Center College of Design and is described like so:
Luxy is a women’s motorcycle helmet for commuting and casual motorcycle riding. Its purpose is to increase helmet use. As many riders are female, the distinctive and unique look sets it apart from existing helmets, proving that style and safety can coexist.
It’s definitely a looker of a helmet, and apparently, I’m not the only one who thinks so, because the Luxy actually won bronze award in the International Design Excellence Awards back in 2010.
