If only I had a large, devoted hat budget for my summer wardrobe plans, I could happily clean out NYC Milliner Satya Twena's entire newest collection - now that I've discovered her brilliant designs, all the floppy beach hats and straw fedoras elsewhere look a bit flat in comparison. Beautifully hand-crafted using vintage molds, all of her charming hats have a wonderfully distinct character without losing their modern wearability and easy charm.
This clearly belongs at a summer race meet, sipping lemonade from a jam jar.
This says "Go away. I'm famous, reclusive, on a French beach and possibly not wearing a top."
A pleasantly pastoral picnic, of course. Demure and charming. I hope someone brought scones.
This one's getting more firmly into costume territory, but in a wonderful sort of way. It kind of makes me picture wearing a petticoat and selling flowers in Portobello Road. There's the possibility of a jaunty musical number ensuing at any moment...
