  • Description

    BRIGHT SUNSHINE IN LONDON AND THE ROOF-TOP OF ONE OF THE CITY'S LEADING HOTELS WAS THE STAGE TODAY FOR 1967'S AUTUMN HAT FASHIONS.

    THE BRITISH MILLINERY INSTITUTE FORECASTS LARGE BRIMS THIS YEAR AND JAUNTY HATS ALONG MASCULINE LINES FOR THE GIRL ABOUT TOWN.

    ONE CREATION - APPROPRIATELY CALLED "UP, UP AND AWAY" - IS A FLYING HELMET AFFAIR THAT AMY JOHNSON WOULD HAVE BEEN PROUD TO OWN. IN BRIGHTEST ORANGE SYNTHETIC FUR, IT FITS SNUGLY TO THE HEAD TO KEEP OUT COLD AUTUMN WINDS.

    THE OLD HIGHWAYMAN, DICK TURPIN, INSPIRES A SMART COACHMAN'S HAT IN SOFT, WOOL FELT. A WIDE BANK OF BLACK RIBBON SWINGS AROUND THE CROWN AND A BRIGHT GILT BUCKLE GIVES THE FINISHING TOUCH.

    LARA IN DR. ZHIVAGO MIGHT HAVE WORN A WHITE COSSACK HAT WITH MATCHING CRAVAT AND MUFF ON A SLEIGH-RIDE THROUGH THE RUSSIAN COUNTRYSIDE.

    "GUN RUNNER" LENDS ITS NAME TO A DEEP ORANGE LEATHER SLOUCH HAT. THE LEATHER IS STITCHED AND THE CROWN IS TRIMMED WITH A BAND OF LEATHER WHICH HAS A FLAT BOW AT ONE SIDE.

    THE ANGELIC LOOK IS GIVEN TO AN ATTRACTIVE BLUE AND WHITE FEATHERED HAT. IT SITS ON THE BACK OF THE HEAD TO GIVE A HALO EFFECT - BUT THE PRICE IS NOT SO HEAVENLY.

    THE 19TH CENTURY STYLES OF THE BRITISH ARMY ARE REVIVED WITH "GAY HUSSAR", A JAUNTY CAP WITH WHITE SYNTHETIC FUR, BLACK SHINY PEAK, CHINSTRAP AND A BRIGHT GILT CHAIN FOR DECORATION.

    AN ADAPTABLE ZEBRA PATTERNED HAT FINISHES THE COLLE??? APPROPRIATELY, IT IS CALLED SEXTET AS IT CAN BE WORN IN SIX DAY WAYS.
