Leopard Spot Felt Cloche hat is 100% pure wool and printed in black leopard style spots on a caramel coloured base.
The hat is a ‘semi percher” meaning that the crown is not too deep. Elastic is included on the hat to allow some extra security. The headsize is medium, approx 56-58 cm fitting.
The brim is an asymmetrical cut, so it sweeps from a narrower width on the right, to a slightly wider width on the left. The brim and headband trim are in black velvet ribbon. The brim curved gently down sweeping over the eye line.
It is a perfect hat for a winter race event, or for a wedding event on a cold day. As the crown is not too deep it gives a retro 40’s style to the hat. The spot animal print adds fun and flair to the overall attraction of this hat.
This is another classic adaption of the cloche hat from Wendy. A cloche hat is simply a close fitting bell shaped hat. Wendy has made so many iterations of the basic cloche design. The cloche style of hat was originally designed by Caroline Reboux, a French designer, at the beginning of the 20th century. It became the go to hat for ladies during the 1920’s and 1930’s. It is a design that has recently become popular again, no doubt because of TV series such as “Downton Abbey”.
Apart from being such a flattering shape the cloche design is incredibly functional. You will never wear anything as toasty warm as a wool cloche.
Leopard Spot Felt Cloche is 100% completely made in Australia, from 100% pure wool, by Wendy in her Melbourne studio.
