Les Ateliers Ruby, Maison Martin Margiela Helmet.

Posted in Uncategorized by The Ruffian on June 22, 2009

“After the first edition of the ‘signature programme’ by Ateliers RUBY®  with the Parisian artist HONET (HNT) and the second with the Anglo-Japanese designer couple: Wakako Kishimoto and Mark Eley, most famous as Eley Kishimoto, for the third edition, Jérôme Coste wanted to venture into the world of the off-beat and re-interpretation which are the founding principles of Maison Martin Margiela.”

“In the midst of celebrating its 20th Birthday, Maison Martin Margiela became highly enthusiastic about the project to transform the Ruby Helmet. Martin Margiela and his colleagues at 163 Rue St-Maur, took the programme literally and each one places his signature on the helmet to create a collective work. The carbon shell is varnished then covered with broad lines of paint with a ‘meudon white’ effect, the pure but imperfect white’s that are the ‘Maison’s’ universal hallmark.”

“The traditional Ateliers Ruby cardinal red interior is replaced by black leather and the logo is drawn in chrome and white.”
