Crystal Birch & The Hat Factory starring Kat van Duinen Knitwear
for the FW21 ORB Hat collection.
Crystal Birch & The Hat Factory are proud to present the digital launch of their latest collection inspired by all things spherical; in which a two-dimensional circle becomes a round, three-dimensional object. In thinking of how much this shape informs our lives – from the macrocosmic shape of planets like Earth, Venus and Mars – to everyday, microcosmic iterations like CDs, bubblegum, biscuits and disco balls, the orb shape is inherent everywhere. Vivid and chaming, this collection is offered in collaboration with Kat van Duinen’s Weekend collection of jumpers; making for the perfect winter capsule inspired by bouncing, exuberant colours and shapes.
“I want to teach people that the basic shape of the hat is important, and to celebrate the smaller hat inspired by the ball-shape element. Smaller hats can be disregarded; but they are the perfect stepping stone towards the more elaborate shapes that we are used to. This collection is a homage to simplicity and colour.” – Crystal Birch
