Hat in a shop window, London

Filed under: daily life,Other Millinery people — Cristina de Prada @ 11:16 pm

Hat at Jaegers shop window I was in London the week before last. It’s funny because I had not been in london for years (possibly a decade) and in the last three months I’ve been there twice!… not that I’m complaining.

I saw this hat in the window of Jaeger’s and took a picture with my cell phone. It’s made of horsehair braid all draped around the crown and it looks really cool. The idea was to go back and try it on, but after that I was not able to find the shop again… duh!

I also saw a beautiful Stephen Jones hat in the Liberty’s sale. It was a little top hat made out of black leather embossed with a liberty design. It had a little black veil… really cool! But still too expensive for my pocket.

But I did buy some pieces of Liberty fabric that were on sale (in pieces of 1, 2 or 3 meters, but mostly only 2 and 3 meters were left and I was there -by pure chance- on the first day of the sale!).

  1. You didn’t try it on IMMEDIATELY upon viewing it? Is it possible to get jet lag between Spain and London or something?

    It is an interesting hat, very Italian 1950-60s looking. Perfect with a sleeveless sheath and big sunglasses. Glad to see the style popping up again.

    I know you are just a “wannabe” but if you wish to be a REAL hat maker, you must develop you inner hat/eye/hand co-ordination, that part of you that upon seeing a hat, immediately reaches out with your hand and can not be distracted until said hat in on head.

    You are coming along nicely however; you got the hat/eye/grab camera part down pat! Thank you for sharing that lovely hat!
