Curious Trends

Shoes as headwear


Are shoes the new hats? I’m not quite sure where and when this curious trend originated - I may even have started it myself…


In early October, I was pictured wearing a Vivienne Westwood shoe on my head in a blog post.

A couple of weeks later, Drapers followed suit with their own version of the unusual headwear.


Then, in late January, I was surprised to see these curious millinery creations by Helsinki based designer, Minna Parikka, at a fashion show in Paris.





The photograph at the top of the page is of a hat that was especially made by Minna Parikka for Lady Gaga to wear at her concerts in late January.

Ah yes, Schiaparelli made a shoe shaped hat, thought it wasn't made using an actual shoe...
