A handful of new millinery designs caught my eye this week:
Stunning picture hat with a classic shape and colour scheme from Australian milliner Marilyn Van den Berg
From Dublin-based Martha Lynn Millinery, a red straw button percher with large perspex bow printed with triangles
Easy breezy straw fedora with raspberry crown, cream brim and striped hatband from Bundle McLaren
Phenomenal red floral, lace and veil trimmed percher from Ghanan milliner Velma Owusu-Bempah
Unexpected, graphic wide brimmed hat in orange, cream & black from Melbourne based Murley & Co Millinery
Chic boater with pork pie crown, layered straw & velvet hatband and dotted veil from Dutch milliner Wies Maduit
And from Australian milliner Catherine Ellen, this cheeky and very sweet design that I’d just LOVE to be able to wear to high tea. Such fun!
