White Silk Breton Hat is a Classic style of hat from the 1960’s/70’s. The shape is based on the French classic traditional Breton style hat design. Wendy has turned such a classic design into a stunning contemporary style hat perfect for the modern-day bride. The hat is designed to sit towards the back of your head.
This particular hat has no crown, but a crown can be added if you prefer. It will probably depend on how you want to wear your hair. Without the crown you would ideally have your hair up in a bun at the back of your head sitting in the centre of the hat. Certainly, this hat will equally look stunning with your hair down.
The hat is made with white espartrie and covered with pure dupion silk. The brim depth is 11cm, but it can be made larger or smaller.
An internal bow has been placed on the inside of the brim at the back. An external bow would also be possible if you are looking for something a little different.
There is an internal comb to provide a secure fit on your head. A headband could be attached to this for further security if you like.
A detachable veil could also be attached from under the brim at the back if you like.
White Silk Breton Hat is 100% hand made by Wendy in Australia in her Melbourne studio. Like all of Wendy’s pieces this is a one off not to be repeated.
If you love this unique style of Breton Hat but were perhaps after something with different embellishment, then contact Wendy directly on firstname.lastname@example.org or call her on 0416310028. Wendy would love to chat with you to customise your own unique piece for your special day. By all means pop into Wendy’s Melbourne studio to discuss the possibilities with Wendy in person.
This style of hat would also suit a mother of the bride perhaps in a different colour to match her outfit. It could also be a perfect hat style for the races.
