not mickey mouse.

Tweaking the Mickey Mouse ear concept is Piers Atkinson, a milliner from London.

I must say these pieces really appeal to me, particularly Look 1 on the top left with one ear smaller than the other and also Look 5: The Showgirl in neon.

The theme for his SS09 collection is "weird and wonderful balaclavas".

I have collaborated with Zandra Rhodes and Vera, an 80 year granny up north who is on board as my knitter!
Can't wait to see Granny Vera's handiwork!
