Headbands, headbands and more wire headbands!!
For my Graduate Collection “Hat Deconstruction” I’ve made a headpiece out of wire headbands and combs that are usually never seen when a hat is worn. These headbands and combs keep the hat or headpiece stable on the head and allow perching silhouettes and very tall shapes. They are the foundations of a hat or headpiece.
I’ve given aesthetic independence to wire headbands that are never seen as independent or beautiful but always seen as a technical element made to be hidden. By making this headpiece I’ve intended to reveal the structure of the hat and re-purpose it’s functionality.
