Turning Japanese: Tokyu Hats by Ann Shoebridge

Tokyu hats by Ann Shoebridge

Milliner Ann Shoebridge returns with a brilliant trans-seasonal collection (rivalling her ‘Petit Fours’ collection; the one that initially made me fall in love with her hats). Titled ‘Tokyu'; the designs are colourfully shot by local photographer Jo Duck with complimenting Harajuku-influenced nail art by The Super Rad Nail Sisters. Obviously the collection celebrates Japanese style. What, in particular, was Ann thinking of when creating the pieces? “Cherry blossom season, warm sake, big city lights and a hint of Kyoto rustic charm”. Anyone for a nice glass of umeshu?

    These pictures and the headpieces themselves are really beautiful. Well done to everyone involved! Ginza and Kyoto Maiden are the best.

  2. I like Ginza too, but I think Rising Sun is really smart – like pollen fallen off a flower.
