Inspired by the secretively risqué "Peekaboo" ties popular with gentlemen in the 1940's, this collection juxtaposes seriousness with sexiness, masculine with feminine and functionality with decorative. But the story of this collection came in threefold. First, Amandalynn collaborated with Goorin's original custom designer, Christa Baker, to produce headpieces complimenting the theme of Peekaboo. These pieces were then featured on Amandalynn's muses, Jesse Lee and Justine for a photo shoot with photographer Ken Goto. With all artists' talents combined, the resulting photos were nothing but jaw-dropping to say the least.
Finally, the photos became Amandalynn's inspiration for four original paintings - all of which contributed to the completion of the new collection showcasing hat styles for both men and women along with ties. Although a few new additions this year are: head-turning fascinators and hairpieces for women, hand painted limited edition items and custom Peekaboo hat boxes.
Please come join me in celebrating this inspiring and enticing line at our Peekaboo Release Party at the North Beach Goorin Shop in San Francisco, this Friday, November 16th. Thanks so much to everyone involved!! -Amandalynnn
