Black Feather Cloche Hat is a cloche shape hat made from a black straw base. Black Marabou feathers ring around the fringe of the brim.
Wendy calls this particular shape hat “Audrey” in an ode to Audrey Hepburn who wore this style of bucket hat with such class and poise.
The feature of this “Audrey” is the amazing marabou feather fringe. Marabou is a large African Stork and Wendy ensures that all feathers are ethically sourced. The fringe brim is made with lots of long black marabou feathers. What a stand out and such fun to wear. This feather trim is luxury and makes a funky retro look. A touch of pure silk as a bow adds a touch of glamour to finish this trendy piece.
Dare to wear this piece on Derby Day at the Melbourne Cup Racing Carnival. Dare to be a stand out amongst the crowd. No one will have anything to compare to this incredible creation.
Wear this piece with a cute 1940’s suit or a voluminous skirted 1950’s dress. Wear this hat with a tailored suit. The possibilities to match against this hat are endless.
You can tilt “Audrey” to the back of your head so the eyes are easily seen. Or you can tilt it forward so the bottom of the marabou feather fringe just hides the eyes from the viewer. This creates such an alluring and mysterious look.
Black Feather Cloche Hat is 100% made in Australia by Wendy in her Melbourne studio.
