I would love to know the mad hatter who created this chapeau of feathers. The silhouette reads 20's cloche... the bell shape is simple, rounded with a short brim so the focus is the crazy mix of feathers. Judging by the unexpected bits of banana yellow, mint green, powder blue and flourescent red peeking out I suspect a lack of ventilation in the atelier when the vat of glue was left uncovered... such wonderful patterns and colors.... like an abstract painting for atop ones head which is exactly where this hat would be if I were a girl.
In my thrillingly delusional existence as a world renowned designer, stylist, photographer, writer, flea-market scavenger and tap dancer my wandering eyes chance upon many items of wonder and beauty. This blog is where I share my visual discoveries. Thanks for wandering over and taking a look.
