Black Upsweep Side Hat is a favourite classic style of swept up brim that is so popular. Wendy has made this swept brim hat in black sinamay and finished with a sweeping spiral of black fine vintage crinoline trim around the edge and tied in a bow at the top of the brim.
Wendy has taken the humble brim and turned it into an elegant sweeping sculpture that tilts on an angle over your head. It is a work of art. The angle Wendy creates with this hat creates the allusion of height as the eye is taken upwards from the base to the bow at the top. Wearing a hat at this angle is always so much more flattering and interesting to a large brim hat simply worn flat on your head.
The lines created by this brim style hat are a testament to Wendy’s early training as a sculptor. This is the perfect hat for a more sophisticated look where you want people to know you know how to dress.
This hat would be perfect for many occasions. Certainly it would be just right for a Derby Day outfit during the Melbourne Cup Spring Carnival. It would also look stunning for a day time wedding or any other outdoor event. A black hat like this would match so many styles of outfits and so many different colour arrangements.
The hat sits on a comfortable wide headband. Elastic can be added for further security.
Black Upsweep Side Hat is 100% made in Australia by Wendy in her Melbourne studio.
