Lately, I’ve been obsessing over hats!! All starting in my recent search for accessories to use with my collection that was shot last Sunday. I found a couple of designers that I LOVE.
Albertus Swanepoel. A milliner that started out as a clothing designer, now based in NYC in the garment district, works with designers such as Marc Jacobs, Derek Lam, Proenza Schoeler and Carolina Herrara. Hats,” states Albertus “are like sunglasses. They detract and attract attention at the same time.”
La Cerise Sur Le Chapeau: based in Paris, France where YOU are the designer. Located on the 6th arrondissement closed to Saint Germain des Prés, la Cerise sur le Chapeau (Cherry on the hat) makes hand-made hats for men and women. You can also go online at lacerissurlechapeau.com and custom design your on hat with a click of a couple of buttons! Very grandpa-ish and old school vintage with a modern twist.
Savannah Wyatt: Little did I know when I ripped the article out about Savannah Wyatt and her hats and headpieces from Indie Magazine months ago in hopes to somehow use them for my shoot, that she was actually a SCAD graduate a couple of years ago. The hats are so intriguing, yet oddly different that you probably wouldn’t wear them on the streets, but the headpieces are wearable, for that daring lil fashionista. Unfortunately, her hats were out on a shoot and I wasn’t able to use them I actually had a couple of her headpieces on set, but they never fit in to any of the shots. oh well.
