Apart from Vogue Nippon’s Anna Dello Russo, she’s counted singer Adam Ant among the big names who’ve been seen sporting her hat. There have been multiple sightings of him wearing the pirate-themed hat leaving a night club, at a gig, out on the street and even on the cover of Vive Le Rock magazine.
Adam Ant’s hat looks like a cross between a British officer’s hat and that of a pirate. It seems quite fond of this style (note the inset promotional photo). Mich’s version has an elaborate leather seal that proudly says “Made in Manila for Adam Ant.”
Meanwhile, Mich has pledged her support for UNICEF’s Auction for Action by donating one of her hats that has actually been signed in gold by the British music legend. Apart from a handwritten note from the designer and the singer, the hat comes with additional Adam Ant paraphernalia like a signed poster, a tour t-shirt from his current "The Good, The Mad and The Lovely Tour," a set of four badges, a wristband, and a plectrum he used at a recent gig at legendary London music venue The 100 Club.
The fundraiser is meant to benefit children’s programs in the Philippines and worldwide and pieces from Celestina, Kenneth Cobonpue, and jewelry by Michelline Syjuco are among the other items that will be sold.
