Radio Prague Reports:


The “radiovka” beret, known for its little antenna-like tassel on top may not exactly be the height of fashion but the beret does have a long tradition in the Bohemian and Moravian countryside, especially among the older generation. Though most popular in the ’60s or ’70s, you’re still likely to see the beret worn by some even today. Ondrej Stanek, a young Czech artist now exhibiting in Brno, decided to use the “radiovka” for inspiration in a new art installation. Namely, he has developed a series of cycling helmets in the classic “radiovka” shape.
