Navy Vintage Silk Hat is pure vintage. Wendy has used a stunning Navy colour vintage silk on a vintage 1930s block to create this gorgeous hat. Yes it is a proper hat with a dainty mini brim edge. Navy blue veiling over the silk creates subtle patterns of interest. On the side there is a gathering of pink silk flowers and beading. There is a youthful abandon with this hat. It is a clever play on an almost child like hat from the 1930’s but done in such a sophisticated and gown up way.
The hat is designed to sit on top of your head (not down the side). The slightly bowed angle in the brim at the front of the hat creates a cap like look. Quite simply a beautiful piece that could suit so many outfits and colours. This is not your typical fascinator or brim. It is a hat with a difference. A hark back to yesteryear when a simple mini brim was so fashionable.
This hat would help create such a fun different look this year at the Spring Carnival of races. Yes, it is definitely a perfect accessory to your Spring racing outfit. Or why not wear this as a wedding guest. Such a quaint look for a daytime wedding.
There is a comb inside and an elastic to help ensure this hat sits snuggly and securely on top. it won’t fly off in the breeze.
Navy Vintage Silk Hat Mini Brim is 100% hand made by Wendy in her Melbourne based studio. It is a one off. It will not be repeated. You will not see it on anyone else. It can be your own unique mini brim.
