There are few milliners out their that can create as much of a stir as the amazingly talented Piers Atkinson. I've got an awful lot of admiration for this man, and have yet to come across anyone else who pushes boundaries as far.

Atkinson has collaborated with some big names such as Noki, Ashish, Ashley Isham and even Topshop, as well as being commissioned by Paloma Faith, Cate Blanchett and Lady Gaga.

Atkinson's free-thinking attitude to headgear Is controversial, subversive and humorous. Each collection has its own personality and theme running throughout, with each piece being more awe-inspiring then the next!

My personal favourite is 'The Mouse that roars' collection, with each hat being a take on the infamous Mickey mouse ears, however Ive also got a lot of love for the deformed Barbie pieces!

Here are a few of my favourites, you can access the full archive of Atkinson's work over at his website.
