Cape Town based stylist and milliner Crystal Birch has unveiled the Celestia (Latin for ‘heavenly’) capsule hat collection with a truly spectacular lookbook. Sporting names like ‘Icarus’, ‘Nebula’, ‘Melancholia’ and ‘Magellanic‘, the collection is comprised of 12 designs – ranging from the classic to the decidedly more adventurous. The entire range is modelled by Aniek Nieuwenhuis and Johannes Westerveld in a series of arresting flash-lit images snapped by Kristin-Lee Moolan, with hair and make-up by Dale Madison Titus.
