Titled ‘All The Rage’ Piers Atkinson’s AW18 collection is a glamorous affair featuring leopard prints, ostrich poms and Swarovski crystals.

The felt leopard print boldly contrasts with the black rims on a fedora and toweringly tall bowler hat.

The leopard print comes in many disguises. As a laser cut pattern veiling tightly hugging a black leather micro beret.

As sparkling detailing on a laser cut mask and the laser cut veiling of a micro beret adorned with a large black magnolia.
