Francesco Ballestrazzi’s Marvellous Head Pieces

Unless you want to steal the groom, Francesco Ballestrazzi's creations aren't the type of hats you'd want to wear to the wedding of your best friend. There're a couple of things his pieces of art can provide you with:

1. The groom. No matter if you're beautiful or ugly, pulling off his extraordinary pieces requires such an attitude that with all that self-confidence you'll be the most interesting woman in the crowd.

2. The attention. Unless the lovely Anna Dello Russo's invited to the party and is wearing two of Ballestrazzi's pieces while you are showcasing only one on your head, you'll have all the attention of the guests.

3. A peak in your digital fame. Come on, we're all addicted to our Instagram & Twitter. You'll be tweeted around, instagrammed in various filters and your picture will end up as a trending topic. All thanks to Ballestrazzi's magic touch to your outfit.

Well, you see. Not a bad investment, especially in times of economic crisis where each penny should be spent strategically. 

I am not a fan of blogging for new talents as I'm only interested in contemporary art & digital marketing as far as my blogging topics go YET when I saw that one piece with the huge spider, I knew I had to write about him for Diane. 

Francesco's the talent behind Moschino's eyecatching shopping windows that never disappoint. Given that he has this endless imagination, who knows what inspired him to create this black widow? I'll be happy to meet him in person with Diane during next fashion week & hear all the story.

His works can be seen, touched, worn, tried on & finally purchased at Spiga2 store in Milan and in case you're not in Milan, you can contact him at
