Snow flakes and bird feathers

...seen on caps from the autumn/winter 2012/13 collection by the Austrian label Capo. The Bregenzerwald based company celebrates in 2012 its 100th anniversary. For the 'Wälder Geist' (means as much as 'Forest Spirit') 2012/13 collection, Capo incorporates the impressions from nature and culture of the region into caps and hats from classical Trachten styles over fashion pieces to functional sports wear.
