Here I am looking like Rick Wakeman at a Slytherin house party. I expect your eye is drawn to my dramatic headpiece. And almost certainly you are wondering were you can obtain such a handsome garment? I’m about to explain, and surprisingly it’s not the gift shop at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando.
What follows is a selection of Snufkin hats, part of the first Engineered Garments AW drop over at The Bureau.
At first I assumed ‘Snufkin’ to be a made up word. But after some light Googling, it turns out it’s a made up word that is the name of a character in the Moomin literary universe. A, “Snufkin is a philosophical vagabond who wanders the world fishing and playing the harmonica. He carries everything he needs in his backpack…”
I mean, let’s be honest, you’d have to be a fucking hardcore EG fan to wear one of these. I consider myself reasonably hardcore, but… well, may I remind you of the picture at the top. To be fair, Mr The Bureau, pictured below makes a much more convincing job of getting away with it. Even so, he’d still look more comfortable riding a broom.
It’s easy to take the piss out of specific, statement pieces within a designer’s collection. Easy, lazy, and ultimately pointless. Welcome to my site.
