Haute Couture helmet #5: by fashion designer Diane Von Furstenberg

The impressive bold red animal print combines the Spring/Summer love for daring colors and voluminous patterns, with the fierce spirit of the sportsmen and the eye-catching inclination of any stylish statement piece.



Haute Couture helmet #4: by fashion brand Badgley Mischka

Channeling some of the most popular winter trends, Badgley Mischka added white floral lace and deep red embroidery to create a fabulous helmet. The bold contrast of colors and the exquisite design make this haute couture helmet one we would love to auction for!



Haute Couture helmet #3: by fashion designer Nicole Miller

Contrasting prints has also been one of the major fashion trends of the Fall/Winter and Spring/Summer runways. Nicole Miller has kept this in mind with a gorgeous haute couture helmet which combines black-and-white stripes and colorful floral designs and appliqués. Beautiful!



Haute Couture helmet #2: by fashion brand Marchesa

Dark, mysterious and elegant, Marchesa’s designer Georgina Chapman created her haute couture helmet with some beautiful and detailed embroidery using small feathers and crystals. The result is a gorgeous fashion piece you’ll love to own even if you aren’t a football fan!



Haute Couture helmet #1: by fashion brand Bloomingdale’s

With the incorporation of four replicas of the Statue of Liberty, a reproduction of the Empire State, a black-and-white checkered pattern and crystal accents, Bloomingdale’s haute couture helmet is a fun and urban fashion piece which embodies the New York spirit. Love it!
