New Zealand based label I Love Ugly have recently released a limited edition range of 5 panel caps.
Founded in 2007 by Valentin Ozich, the brand has flourished ‘down under’ – with Ozich being announced as one of Australasia’s young men’s designers to watch in 2011. However, the designer now wants to broaden his horizons and expand into Europe, and if these caps are anything to go by, he should find the transition a seamless one.
Each individual style within this extremely limited edition range features a completely unique print, which range from horses and plants to cherries and butterflies. To add to the sense of individuality, the caps have been constructed in unique fabrics and materials from the Far East – many of which are dead-stock, meaning they are the last of their lines, never to be used again.
Each cap features vertical brass signature eyelets, which sit alongside a custom stitched leather strap and buckle at the rear for size adjustment.
With only 250 of each cap being produced – of which only 100 are being sold in the UK – these caps are extremely rare. However, this will guarantee you an exclusive garment that should only increase in value and kudos as I Love Ugly’s presence grows ever stronger within Europe.
