Alter Ego

Does the hat wear you or do you wear the hat? Julian Lim questions this with ‘Alter Ego’: a collection of transformable hats that can be worn anywhere on the body, redefining the traditional concept of what a hat is. Rugged zippers cut through the supple black felt, given free rein to deconstruct the flawless shapes. Out of this tailored chaos come new possibilities. The accessories can be infinitely adapted to define your own personal style, used either to adorn the body or even the interior.
