She is trying to integrate artistic sculpture into head wear design and convince people that standout hats and traditional hats aren’t that different. That is exactly what we are trying to do with La Strada ice cream: color the street and invite people to stand out! That’s why we like Mimosa so much and were making plans to go visit Himo, her studio shop in Berlin.

She is terribly creative, possibly due to her sculpting background and her experience in performance arts. She manages to design and then bring to live these amazing had pieces, sometimes huge but always light and in perfect balance.

Mimosa doesn’t say no to traditional head wear either. Her collections include bonnets, turbans and several classical felt hats, but our hearts go to the theatrical models that turn heads on the street.

If you want to get to know Mimosa better, visit her website.

PS: In case you are wondering, Himo is the Finnish word for Passion. Let’s have a cup of La Strada passion fruit sorbet in Mimosa’s honor!
