There is another fashion item from the portfolio of the industrial designer. This time it is hat designed in 2009 by Oscar Diaz`s friend Henny van Nistelrooy.
The project called Il Cappello della Luce is a collaboration between Nistelrooy and the finest Italian hat maker Barbisio. The idea of the little bit surrealistic design is inspired by the film-noir style comics namely Frank Millers's Sin City. The felt hat plays with the optic illusion of the shadow and light. Because in these films, the men are characterized by the strong expressive silhouette dominating by the hat with strong shadow. The London-based designer materialized this shadow into the design itself.
Very nice example of the different approach to the fashion, as well as illusionism in contemporary experimental design.
