Affordable, awesome, innovative British millinery and affordable to boot. Don’t ask me to choose my favourite piece as I can’t. Pearl and Swine well worth checking out.

Witty & wearable

18 Oct

As you already know I adore the work of Piers Atkinson (this link takes to my previous post on his Sex on the Brain collection), and am bursting with excitement that I can wear one of his creations for the EYHO & PP shenanigans next week. This frankly awesome news got me hunting through his website (for the millionth time) where I was reminded just why his work captured my imagination from the very first time I saw it. Items from The Frog & The Princess (AW09) collection shown below really summarise why he nails it for me as my favourite milliner – playful, funny and some even slightly ridiculous all of them are very wearable and destined to make anyone feel rather naughty indeed. I can’t wait!
