Isabella Blow’s Ex-Roomie Artist Haluk Akakce Wears a Paper Jacket

By

Haluk Akakce is an artist who lives in England. "I collect hats — they're sculptures, they're statements," he told us. The day our Video Look Book cameras caught up with him, he was wearing a paper jacket and blue hat he had painted black the night before because he "had nothing to wear." He also lived with Isabella Blow for five years. "I lived with 800 hats. Hats everywhere." Watch the Video Look Book to scope out the labels (Westwood, Posen, Louboutin) worn by his companion, art curator Stacy Engman.
