An avid cyclist as a boy, Paul was injured in a crash when he was 15, putting an end to his hope of one day competing as a professional. And though that door closed, another one opened and his love of design, fashion, art and style allowed him to forge his path as a one of Britain’s most successful designers.
Nevertheless, cycling has continued to play a large role in his career, cropping up in collections as well as through collaborations like this one.
The partnership presents Paul’s take on the ‘Protone’ helmet, a model designed with a focus on performance, lightness and above all, safety.
Made in Italy, it features state-of-the-art tech, including in-moulding technology to provide superior shock absorption as well as a dial to make micro adjustments for the perfect fit. All in all, you can consider it an ideal option for pros and recreational riders alike.
