Hats off

Irish Independent - Weekend Magazine - - PHOTOGRAPHER JOHN MINIHAN CLOTHING COLLECTOR WILLI -

An­thony Peto, chape­lier à Paris, has added a de­ligh­tul French vibe to the Ir­ish millinery scene and his lat­est col­lec­tion is packed with colour­ful, quirky de­signs with a twist. The wed­ding and racing sea­son has cer­tainly kicked in, and I con­fess to hav­ing a new hat fo­cus at the mo­ment as I’m judg­ing the Bollinger Best Dressed com­peti­ton at Punchestown next Fri­day. Chat­ting with An­thony in his Dublin store, he told me how his new col­lec­tion was mostly in­flu­enced by the Ital­ian Re­nais­sance. His aim is to make hats that are “both ethe­real and mod­ern” and he clev­erly uses silk flow­ers to cre­ate shapes, while his colour pal­ette runs across pinks, pur­ples and blues. My favourites are ( above, l–r) his pur­ple rose head­piece, €180; Cruise navy straw hat with cream rib­bon, €220, and Tower of Pisa tilted top­per, €220. All avail­able from his store at 14 South Anne Street, Dublin 2, (01) 635 9977, an­tho­nypeto.com
