This splendid special occasion hat from Jacques Vert is perfect for an autumn or winter wedding. Mother-of-the-bride, mother-of-the-groom or grandmother might enjoy this classic hat with its unique features.
The item is large; Rose thinks its a hat for a woman of big personality and indeed of fuller figure. As photographs show, the headpiece comprises two-colours – charcoal black sinamay and ink-blue jacquard fabric.
The brim is large and slopes downwards. It is in charcoal black sinamay as is the band at the base of its crown and twist decoration. The crown itself makes a strong contrast in its navy ink-blue jacquard fabric, flat top and straight sides. Amongst the charcoal black sinamay twist one sees a bud-effect comprising tightly coiled ink-blue sinamay, small pearl bead tipped stamens. This is a charming feature that rewards the observant companion.
The hat’s crown is lined in black satin fabric and will no doubt keep the wearer warm in drafty old church buildings and indeed outside on a dry yet chilly day.
This hat will certainly make a statement! It is classic in design yet has an individuality in decoration that makes it stand out. Worn once for a few hours at a wedding, it is seeking new opportunities – at another wedding or civic function perhaps.
