Over the summer I discovered a fashion brand (thanks to CL of 2NE1) that has been my latest fashion obsession; House of Malakai (HOM). The head pieces HOM creates are ethereal. Even (what I would consider) the everyday pieces in the Heliolatry Collection have a realm of fantasy and dream to them. For instance, one piece from the Heliolatry Collection that strikes me most is the military visor used in CL’s 나쁜 기집애 (Baddest Female) music video: Click Here.
The shape, lines, and detailing all come together in this cohesive piece that really does honor the Helio-influence as well as charge forward with new vision and grandeur.
I have since really come to terms with some of my own inspirations through this discovery, and that has been quite a liberating and, obviously, inspiring process. Seemingly I will like anything that looks straight out of a fantasy or sci-fi film (particularly Star Wars). HOM’s couture line really evokes a sense of nostalgia and imagination in me that most other head wear does not. It’s like being a child watching Star Wars for the first time again, and imagining all of the possibilities for so many different things.

The styling possibilities are endless. Here is more from HOM’s Couture Line. There is so much visual appeal that I can hardly look at the page without gasping. I’ll look away before I hyperventilate! These dramatic and elegant pieces thrive off of the imagination and culture of both the designer and the viewer; and really comes together as a work of art.
What are some lines that you can’t get enough of? What inspires your style and visually stimulates you? Leave me a comment below, I would love to check out more lines and see what gets you fired up!
