Creating an instant buffer between the wearer and everyone around them, the spiky head wear in the Atmospheric Reentry collection by designer Maiko Takeda is sure to intimidate anyone who wants to get too close.

Transparent plastic quills that are dip-dyed for a gradient effect stand to attention all over these headdresses, creating sculptural body casings that both draw attention, much like the vibrant tail of a peacock, and keep people away like the protective mechanism of a porcupine.

In her description of her Atmospheric Reentry collection of extremely spiked and artistically inclined headdresses, designer Maiko Takeda explains that, "while hats are commonly made with substantial and durable materials... I wanted to create ethereal experiences for the wearer through the pieces."
