RUSLAN BAGINSKIY PRESENTS THE HAT, CRYSTAL EDITION
Ruslan Baginskiy launches The Hat, Crystal Edition – a one-of-a-kind accessory set with a strong collectible feel. A unique approach from the brand – designer hat box meets dream advent, combining headwear and accessories.
A sleek white box with a black ribbon tie and handle contains one classic felt canotier hat, six types of unique crystal-embellished accessories placed in specially created compartments as well as an illustrated book instruction.
The crystal-embellished bold necklace, hairpins, layered chain, RB earring and ear-cuff set, monogram brooch plus two ribbons can be worn as jewelry, hat accessories, all together or individually. When opened, The Hat box reads “Where inspiration brings you today” and that is exactly what the brand entails with the project. Get creative with statement pieces that enhance everything happening above the neck. Inspired by personal style and versatility; the intimate moment of getting ready.
“This project is about individuality and personality to me. Facets are what make crystals shine, like the facets of our personality. I wanted the hat-box to give way to self-expression. Some people will just wear one accessory, others will put them on at once. It’s about how you want to feel at a given moment.” shares Ruslan Baginskiy.
The Hat, Crystal Edition experience feels like a bespoke jewelry box meets dream advent with a spirit of surprise and luxurious old-time travel, perfect for the holiday season. Never-before-seen accessories are presented for the first time and can now only be purchased as part of The Hat, Crystal Edition.
The ‘making of’ shines a spotlight on local craftsmanship. The brand, which usually produces everything in-house, engaged Ukrainian jewelers that hand-crafted pieces for the project. A continued theme of giving endless possibilities when it comes to accessorizing is maintained between the first The Hat, Summer Edition and the new Crystal Edition.
Based in Ukraine, Ruslan Baginskiy founded his namesake brand in 2015. The headwear designer has been revitalizing the landscape of headwear ever since, through a multidisciplinary approach to design that contextualizes the pieces in the spirit of today. As Ukraine continues to struggle with war-time conditions, frequent air-strikes and power problems, Ruslan and team find the inspiration to go-on through their work in sustaining the ‘made in Ukraine’ label possible, which stands for cultural values to the brand.
