With the Super Bowl right around the corner, NFL inspired projects are starting to pop up all over the place. One of the first to catch my eye was this collaborative project between Bloomingdales and the CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America). They came together to create these hideous couture football helmets. Designers John Varvatos, the brothers Ovadia, Billy Reid, Donna Karan, Dao Yi Chao and Maxwell Osborne all created their own custom helmets. They may be ugly but they are for a good cause. The helmets will be auctioned off and the money will be donated to the NFL Foundation, an organization dedicated to improving player safety. Check out all of the helmets below.
Toronto based artist and designer Aiden Glynn (aka Toon) turned random objects he found on the streets into these googly-eyed faces by simply adding eyes, teeth, and other facial features. It’s amazing how these small additions can change the way you view these normally forgettable structures.
