Albertus Swanepoel

New York’s favourite South African milliner, Albertus Swanepoel brings a distinctly playful, and often daring, touch to classic silhouettes. His career has been fairly swashbuckling – he won awards as a young designer in Johannesburg, moved to America to collaborate with the likes of Marc by Marc Jacobs and Proenza Schouler, and created acclaimed hats for Broadway shows – but it’s the singularly elegant vision that he brings to his eponymous collection that makes Albertus Swanepoel a favourite of Liberty London.
