Save/Turn Heads! Four Helmets You'll Actually Want to Wear

Here at Refinery, safety is always in. Kind of helps explain our love of glasses and crossing-guard-worthy brights. But since the seat-belt-as-belt expired in the early '90s, we've been looking both ways for fashionable ways to play it safe. Well heads up: The helmet is on—the runway, that is—and not a moment too soon. After all, how many more models must fall and risk possible head trauma? Well, hopefully for their sake (and ours), more designers will follow in Giles Deacon's footsteps and take the topper precautions. And with biking season around the corner (we swear), the safety of your grey matter is on our mind. So whether you're walking, riding, or just loitering around construction sites, here are a few haute helmets, including Maison Martin Margiela for French helmeter Les Ateliers Ruby, to keep on your brain.
