Red Silk Flower Hat is a simply gorgeous hat with a large single red silk flower sitting on a caplet base made from black and white silk in a herringbone pattern.
The block Wendy has used here is from a custom made one to her own specific design. Wendy used the 1940’s and 1950’s style Juliette Capelet shape hats as inspiration for this shape. It is such a simple and easy to wear shape that was so popular in the 1940’s and 1950’s. Wendy calls this particular shape hat “Sophie”.
The black and white silk herringbone pattern is quite understated. This serves as a perfect contrast to the stunning red silk flower. Wendy has hand made the flower from red silk. A single black twisted quill completes the piece. It is a stunning retro classic .
There is a comb sewn on the inside of the caplet that fits neatly into your hair. Elastic can also be added for absolute security, particularly for those with short hair. It is so light you will forget you are wearing it.
This hat would be perfect for the Spring races, for a wedding or perhaps an evening cocktail event.
Red Silk Flower Hat is 100% made in Australia by Wendy in her Melbourne studio.
If you love this Caplet shape hat “Sophie” but are perhaps after something in a different colour, fabric or embellishment please contact Wendy directly on firstname.lastname@example.org or call her on +61416310028 to discuss customising your own unique piece to match whatever outfit or occasion you have in mind. In fact this would be an amazing shape hat for the retro bride or the mother of the bride. Imagine this in a shimmering white or ivory satin silk. A detachable veil for a bride could also be added. The possibilities are endless.
