Synthetic hair hats have long been associated with the acclaimed Japanese art director Nagi Noda, who’s featured them in ads and music videos for clients such as Nike and Coca-Cola. Now Noda is adding animals to the mix. She and colleagues Asami Nemoto and Shinji Konishi have created 15 unique headpieces inspired by creatures such as rabbits, poodles, owls, and elephants (above) for an exhibition that wraps up in Tokyo next week. The creations will also be making appearances in Björk’s upcoming U.K. tour, as well as in the windows at Colette in September. Moving over to this side of the Atlantic, Noda tells us she’s looking for an American stockist (which we don’t think should be too hard to find), and she’d like to see one of the pieces on an American actress—Winona Ryder, to be precise (that one may take a little more work).
