Hats are one of the most beautiful accessories. They can make or break an outfit but for Ukrainian fashion designer Ruslan Baginskiy that’s not even the case. Since the end of his studies in the Ivan Franko National University of Lviv in 2011, the young deisigner has been focusing on a treating us all to customized collections of hats which are both intricate and avant-garde in nature. These principles have been applied to the label’s latest collection entitled ‘Birds of Paradise’ which is inspired by composer Giya Kancheli, unearthly love, magical romance and as the title of the collection says, paradise birds. Taking these themes Baginskiy creates hats which could be considered works of art using feathers in an architectural way. The pieces are like crowns which merge life and death through the creatures which are symbolic of birds of paradise in all their colourful glory.
