Motorbike fashion is a growing passion for me. Don’t ask me why or how it has come about, because I honestly have no idea but I’m embracing this new love with open arms. I’m a lover of all things vintage – whether it be an old YSL handbag, a hundred year old leather jacket found in Berlin or gorgeous, vintage motorbikes. These amazing machines have grown both in style and appearances and some still seem to keep the timeless grace of their predecessors. Therefore, it makes perfect sense to me, that the man on a bike who has strayed from the path of good style sense, needs to be guided toward a better direction in terms of his clothing. Mission Impossible? I think not.
What’s your Motorcycle Fashion Like
The world of fashion and motorbikes is certainly going to jump up a level. Hollywood star, Channing Tatum is playing legendary stuntman Evil Knievel – in a film he’ll also be producing. Tatum is already showing us a peek of the trends we are expecting when it comes to style and motorbike attire in 2013.
There is something very mysterious and sexy when it comes to men and their motorbikes. However, there will only ever be one Evel Knievel -1974.

Chanel and the Helmet
Well if there is a label that will certainly get helmet gear into a new era of motorbike fashion then Chanel is that label. Your motorbike is worth a lot of cash, but that worth can never compare to the worth of your life. So it makes sense to use luxurious fashion materials to encourage people to wear, and look good wearing, a helmet.
The first model, made way back in 2010, is this helmet. It was covered in black and white tweed (€1,200). So hot were these babies, that they sold out within hours of launching. Why? Because the man on the bike, knows how to represent himself as being a stylish rider.
Karl, I would be kissing that helmet too.

The fleet included a Yamaha XJ6 Diversion F, Suzuki M1800Z, Honda VT750S and a Honda DN-01.
