LET US TAKE A MOMENT FOR CRYSTAL BIRCH’S NEW B@N@N@S RANGE

We featured milliner and stylist Crystal Birch as a #SKATTIEFAV just a few weeks ago, because we absolutely love her and we think she is an absolute nutter, of the very talented and prolific variety. Check here to peep our interview with her. Today she launches B@N@N@S, her SS2016 millinery range inspired by “nipple-loving gorillas, girl scientists and other crazy geniuses.” It is made up of “9 all-black pieces, with hand-crafted details sourced and assembled on the streets of Jozi, the range celebrates a spirit of unconventional self-invention.” Yass skattie yass!  Also, we need to talk about that number with the fringing on the edges. I think my summer look has been decided. Goodbye shades, you are so very 2015, hello fringed hat, i love you, let’s have a summer fling. You too visor, I see you, let’s get together when fringed is not watching.

The hats are available directly from Crystal @ therealcrystalbirch@gmail.com
