Hats at LFW15

Here is another snapshot of what I saw at LFW15. I can’t forget about the gorgeous hats, fascinators and headpieces!

Keely Hunter Millinery showcased her AW/15 Fourth World collection which explores the futurist designs of science-fiction created through a mix of textures and concave shapes aimed to conjure up a sense of portals and unimagined worlds.

Keely was trained in London and worked under various couture designers before establishing her own label. She appeared in numerous  fashion publications – including Vogue Germany, Vogue UK, Vogue Italia, Grazia and Wallpaper and was named by Selfridges to be a Bright Young Thing – the first milliner ever chosen for the store’s ‘next big thing’ designer showcase. Here are some of my favourite designs.

For everyday use, I loved the Perspex Peak Hat and Charcoal Mohair Tall Crown.

For a more avant-garde look, the Block Headpiece, Mirror Saucer and Hexagon Percher definitely stood out!

I am a huge fan of winter warm woolie hats so I fell in love with these Un-spun snood and Casmere Perspex Beanie!

AWON GOLDING MILLINERY was another brand that caught my eye!

Awon Golding is a London based milliner drawing on her multicultural heritage (she spent a lot of time in India. Hong Kong and England) to inspire dynamic headpieces.
Creating dramatic silhouettes, with each piece handcrafted in her London studio, her creative talent was recognised by The Honourable Feltmaker’s Guild, when Awon was awarded first prize in its annual millinery competition in 2010. Currently her pieces are being sold in London’s Liberty!

At London Fashion Week, Awon Golding showcased her AW/15 Floral Decay collection full of crispy autumn hues, from rich pinks and purples to the earthy tones of warm mustard, moss and gold.
“Faux fur and rich felts mingle with buttery soft leather and mirror-polished brass to create a luxe-accented collection. Transitional turbans, headbands and berets provide glamour, whilst cosy cossacks, full-brimmed fedoras and earmuffs balance function with style.”

My absolute favourites are felt hats so I immediately fell in love with this Calyx soft two-tone mustard and magenda fedora velour felt hat set off by a mirror-polished trim band.

How stylish is this eye catching diagonal Heath multi-fur cossack headband made from hot pink, natural fox and purple faux fur!

I really liked this Polen statement beret disc that adds glamour to any outfit. Mustard velour felt base and bow with purple faux fur pom pom and gold crystal accents will make you stand out from the crowd!

Finally, Zoe Sherwood! I loved her signature sculptural pieces inspired by nature.
Central St Martin’s offsping – Zoe is a London based head piece and ornament designer who, before graduating worked with the likes of Diane von Funstenberg and her hair ornaments are currently selling at Liberty’s under their “Best of British Talent”.

Mad Hatter Style – Going Retro

I find that playing around with different styles is not only immensely enjoyable, but it also makes me scrutinize my fashion limitations. Experimenting with new pieces and trends pushes me out of my comfort zone, and as a result it boosts my confidence, making me completely at ease with everything I wear.

I’m playing Mad Hatter in today’s look, going with a more vintage inspired outfit. I love the idea of a wide brim hat however, I never bought myself a proper one, simply assuming it would be a bit too inconvenient to carry if I decide to take it off! As a part of an experiment to get me into wearing more hats I bought this black Primark felt fedora hat, and I could not have been happier with it!

The pretty vintage-inspired bow makes it easy to wear with a furry winter coat or a short shearling jacket,

Made from soft wool, this wide-brimmed feldora hat is perfect for those chilly Saturday shopping trips or Sunday lunches and at £8, it surely is a foolproof accessory you can’t afford to miss!

I mixed it with this cosy Faux fur collar maxi cardigan, also from Primark.

Funky, stylish and practical with a touch of American retro! I love the way it is complemented by the hat and how unasumingly cool and off-duty it makes the whole outfit look.

Layering is great for winter, so I opted for this sumptuously soft CARVEN Green Tigerintarsia Knitted Sweater I picked up from theOutnet. I love the teal / coral nylon and mohair-blend and tiger stripe design that goes so well with natural tone of the leggings!

These Donna Karan New York Seamed skinny rattan pants are one of the classic body pants, designed with lines and seams that make the difference tracing the silhouette, accentuating the positive through sculpting, shape and structure, also engineered to elongate the leg.

This is what you call a great easy chic look for busy ladies!

I popped on these Sam Edelman Petty Sued Booties I picked up on BrandAlley. With one of the season’s hottest silhouettes, they are on my top 10 perfect flat booties list!

Sam Edelman shoes are defined by a strong eye for fashion so no wonder that after more than 30 years in the industry, he has honed his craft to design shoes that reflect his creative sensibility and confident style. His expressive signature on the insole of his shoes has become an iconic hallmark of quality.

My favourite features are stacked heel and tonal grosgrain piping at the notched top line.
