Three milliners to help you stand tall
Diana did many things incredibly well, but she really excelled when it came to hats. Pillboxes, berets, boaters… You name it, she wore it. Even better, there wasn’t a ‘naffinator’ in sight. Follow her lead, as we share three of the coolest hat brands around. Chapeau!
1. Lack of Color The latest in a string of Australian brands to hit the UK market, Lack of Color oozes cool. Thanks to the topsy-turvy northern- and southernhemisphere s eas ons, it offers both straw and wool hats all year round. It’s a favourite among bloggers and influencers – and we can see why. The Cruz panama, £115, lackofcolor.com.au.
2. Maison Michel Founded in 1936, and bought by Chanel in 1997 as part of the fashion house’s Métiers d’art scheme, Maison Michel is best known for adding a light-hearted touch to millinery. Its signature pieces are two-tone fur-felt fedoras, while its straw boaters are a must for any holiday wardrobe. Virginie fedora, £560, michel-paris.com.
3. Filù Hats Anne Hamro combines her native Californian aesthetic with the craftsmanship of Italy, where she now lives. The result? Filù hats are eyecatchingly individual without being wacky. Mauritius pap er-straw hat, £440, matchesfashion.com.
