Albertus Swanepoel Gets A Corporate Gig

Much loved by fashion designers (Proenza Schouler, Marc Jacobs, Alexander Wang, Narciso Rodriguez, and Diane von Furstenberg) and editors (Vogue), but little known to consumers, milliner Albertus Swanepoel has finally landed a lucrative corporate collaboration which should send his exquisitely-designed headpieces straight into the mainstream spotlight.

Known for his exceptional attention to detail, handwork, and use of exotic materials (such as the rooster feather hunting cap in Carolina Herrera's fall 2008 collection above), the South African-born, New York-based Swanepoel will launch a collection with U.S. hat manufacturer Stetson this fall. The line will be sold seasonally at Barneys, Bergdorf Goodman, and Saks Fifth Avenue and retail for $180-$300. Thank you, Stetson.
