The London Fashion Week exhibition at Somerset House is a great place for us to discover new names, new looks, new trends and directions each season, and the AW’13 exhibition held in February, did not disappoint. The first name that we would like to familiarize you with is Piers Atkinson. This is another deeply creative addition to the ever growing list of rather wonderful British milliners. Atkinson’s AW’13 aesthetic seems to perfectly blend Art Nouveau inspiration with Hitchcock heroine chic. I would get married purely to be able to wear this stunning lily inspired headpiece.
Piers launched his first millinery collection 2008, after perusing various other roles within the fashion industry. He has collaborated with various cutting edge designers like Ashish and Noki, and has dressed famously well hatted celebrities like Anna Dello Russo, Lady Gaga and Paloma Faith. Atkinson has also had pieces in the V&A’s ‘Hats: an Anthology by Stephen Jones’- so probably quite remiss of us to not have been au fait with his work until now!
