Bristled mind armor by Maiko Takeda

Maiko Takeda’s fashion accessories are inspired by the environment: shadow, wind, gravity and the such. Her recent Atmospheric Reentry collection — crafted at Royal College of Art where she’s pursuing a Masters in Millinery — contain simply stunning works made of clear film, perspex and silver. Can’t help but think that these delicate and bristled hat forms are akin to armor for the mind.
