Art and fashion inspired by found objects insistently grabs my attention every time. When I came across the quirky stylings of Zara Carpenter aka Chatham Girl, I was immediately drawn to the bright colors and dream-like premise of her latest collection of bespoke hats. Zara lists Mark Ryden, Edward Gorey, Oscar Wilde, Lewis Carroll and Angela Carter as a few of her muses. I think I would like this girl.
The contrast-heavy photography is an attention grabber in itself, and reminiscent of a Zink Magazine editorial I fell in love with ages ago.
