Headonism: Piers Atkinson

Venturing a couple of levels down the stairs at Somerset House there are even more delights in store. This year brought us to the ‘Headonism’ a stunning display dedicated to the hat itself! Oh and what a joy it was.
Featured designers included Soren Bach, Noel Stewart, Little Shilpa and one of our favourites Piers Atkinson. Artist, illustrator, milliner, costume designer, party organiser, fashion editor, project manager - there is not much he can’t do! His astounding hat creations shown at Somerset House were very few of his full A/W 11 collection.

From tubed lighted Paris hats to black cherry topped hats, perfectly executed anyone would be lucky to have one of these designs perched on top of their head.
