Piers Atkinson's A/W10 Lookbook
It may only be his 5th season but Piers Atkinson is proving to be one of London's hottest Milliners. Piers is known for his humorous, colourful fun creations but this season we see the humour turn dark as his A/W10 collection - ' It's Later Than You Think' guides us through the lives of many widows who have just polished off their husbands and seem more concerned with looking fierce than mourning. The colour palette remains dark with mainly black, grays and the occasional nude, interrupted by a spill of blood red. Faces are often masked with hair, antique lace or veils sprinkled in beauty spots, crystals, sequins or pearls in the form of tears or skull's teeth. Gunmetal spikes trim headbands and small fascinators, available also in badges, thanks to PINS LONDON. With a garnish of feathers, netting, hair and of course 1 naked action man ( drowning in black sequined quick sand) you have a very exciting, ambitious and chic collection. Piers is a huge inspiration and I feel very proud to be a part of his world, working so closely with him on all these projects.
As well as his own collection Piers made the showpieces for J Maskrey A/W10 catwalk show styled by the legend that is Judy Blame.
