Karl Lagerfield unveils new fur covered helmets

The latest, naffest bike helmet design springs onto the market from German pony-tailed fashion bloke

FUR COVERED motorcycle helmets were the order of the day at Karl Lagerfeld's Paris Fashion Week, where the designer showed off his autumn/winter collection.

The mink covered helmets, made by French brand Ruby, and fitted with an iPod connection, so those with more money than sense (or conscience) can look, er, cool.

Lagerfeld said: "Now everyone is on scooters, even chic women, so we had to do the helmet."
