The most memorable accessories are ones that complement an outfit while simultaneously elevating the look to a more dramatic, fanciful or sophisticated realm.  Alva Head Wear by designer Alva Wilson achieves this goal with an array of pieces to enhance any hairstyle.  Wilson bends, twists and transforms natural materials such as cashmere, silk and angora into retro, recycled/upcycled or casual hats.  Wilson’s works remains in high demand in Paris, Japan and London.  Presently he is working on three collections for shops in London including Twin Diverse, Disorder and Vertivex.  He will next be featured in the September issue of The Hat Magazine.  Lastly, he is finalizing a surreal collection of headwear inspired by painter Salvador Dali.
