We had a chance to discover Tami Bar-Lev, thanks to Korin Avraham. The Tel Aviv based milliner designs super original hats. The new collection is fruity, elegant, funny and untypical.
Memories of an exotic vacation that had never actually happened.
Dreaming of the perfect ‘escape’ to a tropical island overwhelming with wonderful tropical clichés.
Like the American dream vacation in Hawaii, inspired by the Elvis movie- “Blue Hawaii” and the Beach Boys song “Kokomo” mentioning: “Tropical drink melting in your hand” and “cocktails and moonlit nights”.
The collection consists of fun resort-like hats and head pieces, for day and evening, capturing the essence of this paradise. There are straw hats, silk turbans, Hibiscus headbands and floral silk tiaras, with rich bead and sequins embroideries.
Although probably unreal or fantastic or….. far as it may be from reality, the cliché images woven together create an experience: coconut trees, little umbrellas in your drink, clear waters, white sand, pineapples, hula dancing and flower garlands.
So do YOU like Pina coladas?….
