Hats vs Wigs, Florian Dovillez's Hat Collection

These are not the Mad hats worn at the Royal Ascot 2011, but are the outstanding work of French hair stylist Florian Dovillez. As a fashion lover Dovillez made his way towards hairdressing with the only objective of unleashing all the creativity within him.

In 2011, Florian Dovillez launched his first hat collection in collaboration with stylist Anna Note, whose  clothes were created out of synthetic hair, fine fabrics and wool. The hats are made of 100% human hair, some dyed black, others bleached blonde. The idea was to be able to curl, flat iron or style the hat as it was part of your own hair. Dovillez's goal is to create various volumes of the wearer's actual hair, blurring the lines between what is real and what isn't.

With weight and body, as well as flowing silhouettes, the results are of a timeless beauty. Photographer Riki Tinoza captures the striking Hat Collection in a series of beautiful and ethereal images.

Florian Dovillez lives and works in Montreal.
