Inspired by the flappers of the Twenties, this hat has been in my mind for some time. It’s been struggling to be realized until now however, because modern day felts are just too thick to get the sharp smooth folds that this style demands.
However, in a moment of serendipity we discovered a treasure trove of vintage feather-weight felts, hidden away in a basement. These glorious light weight felts, which have not been produced in decades, are ideal for hand sculpted styles that were popular from the 20’s through to the 40’s.
With our exciting find, we will be hand draping a collection of cloche and fedoras, which are ideal to take you through spring and into summer. Light-weight, easy to wear and impossibly stylish.
Come into the store, these felts have to be seen to be believed. We have them in a wonderful array of colors, but they are limited and once they are gone, they are really gone forever.
I am so proud of this draped cloche I made for Barbara Feinman - the materials were glorious to work with!
