The Carrera Foldable Helmet is a revolution, offering great protection that accordion folds to half its size for far easier storage. Available in a wide array of both fun and refined, shiny and matte colors, the helmet features a collapsable flexible frame, interwoven with an elastic fitting system that provides a superior fit and comfort too. Finally there is a new helmet on the road to fit into one’s Celine ,Vuitton or Saint Laurent (oversized). Now that’s the way to go!

The ever popular aviator sunglasses have taken flight this season with a spectrum of bright summer colors. Favorites like Ray-Bans and Oliver Peoples, as well as designers like Tom Ford, Gucci and Michael Kors, have left the standard gold, green and silver behind, in exchange for lenses and frames of pinks, blues, oranges and purples. These are the new generation of aviators, reinterpretations of the originals, with a modern sporty style.
