Stop by Odin this month to check out an in-store installation featuring the work of milliner Albertus Swanepoel. The hat master had designers including Richard Chai, Band of Outsiders, Irene Neuwirth, Suno, Gregory Parkinson, Cushnie et Ochs, George Esquivel and Duckie Brown create custom mannequin heads, which he then topped with a one-of-a-kind hat.
Possibly the most arresting of the bunch is the collab with Irene Neuwirth: the mannequin head is bejeweled, it spins, and the hat on top is not just camouflage, it's also furry.
