Digital Up Magazine movement Maiko Takeda
What’s it like to wear a cloud on your head? This is the question Maiko Takeda always asks herself prior to creating a new piece. Extraordinary headpieces created out of transparent plastic bristles tinted with colors at the bases and tips, joint altogether with a silver ring. Another creation is a wearable hedgehog-like ornament, which covers head, neck, and shoulders. The garment is made from plastic spikes, yet it seems so soft and touchable.
This Tokyo-born and raised avant-garde designer creates the most peculiar hats and accessories. She finds inspiration in basic nature and environmental elements, such as shadows, wind, and gravity. Experiment is the core of her designing concept.
