Bell’s Custom Moto Helmet

The search for a motorcycle helmet that fits your head can be a difficult task. The standard helmets range in standard sizing from small to extra large, but many people can be in-between sizes. Bell has found a solution to create a custom moto helmet for the perfect fit. A proper helmet can provide stability, reduce wind noise, and most importantly, protect your head. Bell spent the past three years making custom helmet for consumers by 3-D scanning their heads. The scan allows the company to produce a custom carbon fiber helmet at the cost of $1,000. There is also a less expensive alternative from their “ProFIT” system, which allows you to choose from five shell sizes (hard exterior) and six different impact liner sizes (soft interior).

Awaken in a dreamscape.
Feel the frequency of the waves of Pink Beach.
There is no us and them.
Here we all belong.

The Originals Pink Beach Collection has arrived, continuing Pharrell’s ‘Pink Beach’ narrative for SS16. The collection features a full summer wardrobe bearing Pharrell’s illustrated icons for women and men. Similar to the Consortium Collection released last week, the garments are inspired by soulful, luminous sunny island vibes that brings Pharrell’s passion for music, art and fashion to life. Prominent patterns include the Doodle Print, straight from Pharrell’s sketchbook, the Camo Print which was inspired by rainbow eucalyptus trees from the northern islands of the Philippines, the Daisy Print, and the Surf Print.

528HZ or 528 Hertz is also a key component of Pink Beach. It is a frequency that is central to the “musical mathematical matrix of creation.” More than any sound previously discovered, the “LOVE frequency” resonates at the heart of everything. It connects your heart, your spiritual essence, to the spiraling reality of heaven and earth. Hit the jump for more images of the apparel and sneakers.
