STRAND HATTERS X ME
The boys at the Strand Hatters commissioned me to create a special window display for Wool Week. I was also asked to customise two beautiful and unique Akubra hats and cover a bunch of other hats in bespoke pom poms. Can I just say, more men should wear pom poms in my opinion, on their lapels and on their hats, such a good look! Anyway, this project was especially exciting because for starters I love Strand Hatters! It's the only shop of its kind in Sydney selling classic hats and accessories for men; it's run by a team of dapper gents who are all absolute mega babes; and apparently Mick Fleetwood shops there when he's in town. What's not to love?!
The shop is in the Strand Arcade, and the window commission is part of a special Wool Week celebration also featuring none other than the queen of yarn bombing, Magda Sayeg, who knitted up cosies for two huge trees inside the arcade for the occasion. Pop down over the next week to see my windows, and Magda's trees! I snapped some phone photos during the install. Nicer ones to come soon. Thanks Strand Hatters for having me!
