  • Description

    A PROFUSION OF GORGEOUS HATS WERE ON VIEW TODAY (TUESDAY) AT LONDON'S FASHIONABLE MAY FAIR HOTEL WHEN THE MILLINERY INSTITUTE OF GREAT BRITAIN STAGED ITS SPRING HAT COLLECTION.

    THE SHOW WAS OBVIOUSLY INFLUENCED BY THE RECENT PARIS COLLECTIONS, MARKED BY SCULPTED LINE AND SOPHISTICATION.

    THE HATS ON SHOW TODAY HAD A CLEAN, UNCLUTTERED LOOK, WITH A WIDE BOLD RIBBONS AS TRIMMING. PINKS AND NAVY BLUE WERE POPULAR COLOURS WITH COTTON CHECKS FOR YOUNGER APPEAL.

    AMONG THE HATS SHOWN ON OUR FILM ARE: "TEXAS RANGER" SOME INFLUENCE FROM THE WHITE HOUSE ON THIS STETSON BUT SPARKLING PINK WITH NAVY RIBBON ADDS THE FEMININE TOUCH.

    "PREMIER" FROM A LANVIN DESIGN IS IN SAGE GREEN PARIBUNTAL WITH A DEEP PINK UNDERBRIM. RETAILING AT GBP32 THIS WAS ONE OF THE MOST EXPENSIVE HATS IN THE SHOW.

    PADRE SAILOR HATS WERE WELL FEATURED IN THE COLLECTION, AMONGST THEM THIS ONE: "DAISY CHAIN" IN SAND STRAW WITH WIDE BLACK VELVET AROUND THE CROWN AND A SINGLE LARGE DAISY AT THE BACK.

    "LEGIONNAIRE" WAS A BLACK FELT HAT WITH EMERALD CHIFFON ROUND THE CROWN.

    RETAILING AT GBP20 WAS "FLORAL BOUQUET" AN EXTRAVAGANZA OF PALE PINK ROSE PETALS DESIGNED ON THE CAVALIER SHAPE.

    ANOTHER FLOWER THEME WAS "FAIRY GLADE" - A BONNET OF LILY OF THE VALLEY.

    AND FINALLY "ROEDEAN" IN NATURAL STRAW, IT'S A HAT FOR THE YOUNG AT HEART.
