Fashion: Maiko Takeda's millinery is awesomely otherworldly

Posted by Maisie Skidmore,

Royal College of Art student Maiko Takeda is a breath of fresh air in the world of millinery. Her architectural headpieces resemble porcupine quills, ostrich feathers and tiny iridescent fish scales, all artfully woven together with logic and geometry in mind. Their likeness to elements of the natural world are apt, too, as the pieces react strongly to the light, wind and colours of the environment they are worn in.

Maiko counts Issey Miyake, Stephen Jones and Philip Treacy among those she has worked alongside, which might give some clue as to how her career trajectory seems to be progressing; this stunning collection whispers of great things to come.
