WILDER HATS WITH GEORGIA O'KEEFFE – AGAIN!
 
EL147GOK006.jpg

This summer I hinted of my hats with more Georgia O'Keeffe exhibitions and this month it's finally happening! The beautiful exhibition, Georgia O'Keeffe: Art, Image, Style that was at the Brooklyn Museum last spring has made its rounds to Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, Massachusetts.

This exhibition is particularly special to me, because it focuses on O'Keeffe's personal style, and a few of my hat styles were selected to sell in the gift shop to allow visitors inspired by her style to take home a piece of the show. I take it as a huge compliment that my hats are being recognized as fitting with O'Keeffe's personal style, since she's such a female icon.

Anyway, if you're in New England, please go by and check out the exhibition, it's well worth it.

On view December 16, 2017 – April 1, 2018

 
WOMEN AND FILM
 

I'm pretty excited to share that I am now a contributing writer to Women and Filma community and exploration of female directed films and representations of women in media.  

We've started by taking a few of the articles I've written on Bagtazo's Periodical, and we will continue to re-post relevant articles from the Periodical on Women and Film. I'm pretty excited because the site is such a cool concept, and I get to reach a new audience with my work.

If you haven't already read my article on Meredith Monk, you can check out the reposting here.

Bagtazo's Periodical is an art history blog that I maintain somewhat as an exercise to help me through the design process, and to also help me deal with a lot of the angst I have towards the fashion industry and trends. I studied Visual Anthropology at USC, so it's great that my education has come full-circle and now some of my articles will be posted on a film-centric site.

Please subscribe to my periodical if you're into art history, and be sure to follow Women and Film on Instagram. You can also subscribe to Women and Film to receive updates by following this link and scrolling to the bottom of the page.

FALL ARRIVALS – NEW BAGTAZO HATS

BAGTAZO FW17 IS HERE!

 

PEOPLE GENERALLY THINK LABOR DAY IS THE LAST DAY OF SUMMER BUT WE STILL HAVE 18 DAYS LEFT OF SUMMER (SINCE THE AUTUMNAL EQUINOX IS ON SEPT 22ND THIS YEAR). BUT IN PREPARATION FOR THE TURNING SEASON, I'VE UPDATED THE WEBSTORE WITH NEW FALL ITEMS.

HERE ARE A FEW OF MY FAVORITES:

 

PAIGE RAIN HAT

NEW TO THE BAGTAZO REPERTOIRE FOR FW17!

REASONS TO LOVE THE PAIGE RAIN HAT

• YOU CAN SHIELD YOUR FACE FROM A DRIZZLE TO A DOWNPOUR WITH ITS SLOPED BRIM
• THE CROWN SHAPE IS DESIGNED TO SIT LOWER ON YOUR HEAD SO THAT IT STAYS IN PLACE DURING THE FORTHCOMING AUTUMN WINDS
• YOU TOO CAN LOOK LIKE A SPY AND/OR HUMPHREY BOGART

THE PAIGE RAIN HAT COMES IN BLACK OR HEATHER GREY THIS SEASON AND IS TRIMMED WITH A JAPANESE MICROSUEDE BAND

 

MADELINE HAT

 
BAGTAZO MADELINE HAT IN CAMEL FW17
 

BACK FOR HER SECOND SEASON, WITH STRONG CHANCES OF JOINING THE PERMANENT COLLECTION.

REASONS TO LOVE THE MADELINE HAT

• THE TRAILING BACK RIBBON SOFTENS THE BOLD HAT SHAPE
• THE HIGH CROWN BOTH COOLS AND WARMS THE HEAD, WHICH IS REALLY AWESOME FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR. (THE REASON COWBOYS WEAR HATS WITH HIGH CROWNS IS BECAUSE THE SPACE BETWEEN THE CROWN AND THE HEAD CAN COOL WHEN IT'S HOT OUTSIDE, OR KEEP WARM WHEN IT'S COLD OUT. PRETTY COOL, RIGHT?)
• THE WIDE BRIM IS SUPER STRAIGHT, SHAPING THE FACE WITH A SOPHISTICATED, GRAPHIC LOOK

THE MADELINE HAT COMES IN CLASSIC BLACK, CAMEL AND HEATHER THIS SEASON AND IS TRIMMED WITH JAPANESE TAFETA 

 

RODGERS BERET

 
BAGTAZO RODGERS BERET FW17
 

DEBUTING THIS SEASON, THE RODGERS BERET WAS MADE IN VERY LIMITED QUANTITIES WITH FRANCE'S OLDEST BERET MANUFACTURER. BECAUSE OF THE LIMITED AVAILABILITY, THESE HATS ARE ONLY AVAILABLE IN SELECT STORES. SORRY YOU MISSED THIS ONE!

INSPIRATION: GRACE JONES & GENDER NEUTRALITY

THE QUEEN: GRACE JONES

Maybe you already know that I love Grace Jones. To me, Grace is the queen of fashion.

A few days ago as we were testing out where to set up the projector in our new apartment, I put on videos of Grace. We love watching old TV, so we started watching her interviews, and I stumbled upon one that stuck with me.

So, here's a video of Grace Jones talking about gender neutrality and smashing the patriarchy before we had the modern words we use today. (Specfically at 6:28). Out of all the interviews we watched, I thought this interviewer was among the best. Unlike the other interviewers (with the exception of goddess joan rivers), He really did his research and shows no sign of intimidation or judgement. 

Language has become quite complex with regards gender these days, but within my lifetime, we didn't have terms that could easily explain these ideas because they were still being created. Language has always interested me for this reason. Imagine how simple concepts were in ancient Rome before they implemented word order. in this video, Grace is able to explain herself before society could even pallet her ideas, before society even had words for the concepts she's describing.

all hail queen grace
