The ‘halo brimmed hat’ is a traditional hat style from the 1940s.
It is a style that has its history in fashion over many centuries.
This is a modern version of a classic hat that sits at the back of the top of your head as the crown area of the hat is fitted and shaped to be comfortable and easy to wear. The fitting can be a headband or elastic to secure the hat.
The brim area is often called a ‘halo’ in reference to early Biblical images of angels, however this brim sweeps down at the front and up at the back to be really flattering to any face shape. The perfect hat style when you want to ensure you show off your full face as it frames the face, yet look demure and elegant as it partly sweet over the face. This particular piece is in a Japanese printed colton in black and white, with a black silk crown area and a fun orange bow. It is style that is now becoming more popular, in different forms. This style can be made in many fabrics, including leathers, silks and laces. Other examples shown are in hand dyed lace ( without the defined centre crown). The other example is a grey mesh over navy fabric with delicate feather trim. Options of variation to this design of hat are endless.
This headband crown headpiece is made to order. The flowers can be made in many variations of fabrics and colours. Call in to the shop in St Collin Lane, 260 Collins St, Melbourne or contact Wendy to discuss your colour and style needs.
