For her collaboration with digital art publication POSTmatter, Maiko Takeda's (June, 2014) took her Atmospheric Reentry collection and applied fluorescent pigments to the translucent plastic spikes, combining sprayed color gradiens with flecks of paint. Flickering between light and dark, the video shows off the neckpieces under UV light. To quote the artist, "It almost looked like fluorescent jellyfish in water."

When F is for Fashion, in Maiko Takeda’s atelier, it’s not necessarily born of function. These are not logos branded on a five-panel cap. Form, fluidity and fantasy expand the narrow confines of the genre for this young artist who grew up in Tokyo and now designs and hangs her hats in London.

The person singing underneath that crazy, incredible looking headpiece is Bjork. Surprised? Probably not, if you showed us a picture of a woman singing in a crazy outfit that would probably be our first guess too. The headpiece though, was designed by Maiko Takeda and is one of a series of similar pieces entitled Atmospheric Reentry. Maiko grew up in Tokyo and moved to London to study Jewelry Design at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design. She is currently working on her Masters in Millinery at the Royal College of Art.
