WGSN are super excited about this new venture – the first online platform to sell and celebrate the best of the global headwear industry. Founded by Andrew Curran, who is also the co-founder of my-wardrobe.com, the site showcases perfectly unique luxury-level millinery including designers Philip Treacy, J Smith Esquire and Cozmo Jenks. We especially love the virtual ‘try on’ section that allows you to upload a headshot and see exactly how the hat will sit and look on you. Watch out too for the editorial content that boasts street shots, hat trends and event coverage, perfect for providing inspiration – all hail lovehats.com!
Following on from our post announcing the lucky winners of the Lookk.com competition that saw seven designers picked out of 400 worldwide to receive crucial sponsorship and mentoring, we have even more exciting news! Amongst these winners were Breaks and CCKUO whose collections really stood out for the panel, Bubble explains, “You can see it on the rails already.” WGSN can now virtually cut the ribbon and unveil the popup stores of the two young designers on Lookk.com here. Enjoy!
