Hey there! How about a new hat? Vivian created the “Margo” hat for Hattingdon — 2023 Spring/Summer.

The Inspiration

We love everything about this hat. The colours are gorgeous — inspired by the artwork of Sveta Osborne, seen here below.

Hattingdon chose to wear this charming new hat at a flirtatious angle. Absolutely darling.

We hope you love the Margo hat as much as we do, and it brings you a “hatful of smiles”.

Cee Cee

Hello there.

We love 60s fashion. What a groovy and imaginative time. It has definitely inspired what you are about to see — the charming and brand new — Cee Cee Collection.

“When I think 60s fashion,” states Hattingdon creator and designer, Vivian Grant, “I think supermodel Jean Shrimpton. I remember her wearing a fabulous hat (as only she could) with a very tall, oval shaped dome, and a small, round brim. It was sublime. This is what inspired me to create the Cee Cee Hat Collection. Naturally it comes in a wide variety of delicious colors. Hope you love them.”

Winter Coco

Brrrr. Baby, it’s cold outside, in our corner of the world. The good news is Hattingdon can at long last wear her new, lovely faux fur winter hats. Vivian named the hat design Coco.

The Coco winter hat comes in four colorways: black and white, blue and white, pink and white and gold and white. The design features a close fitting cap generously trimmed in faux fur. Here they are.

“A Hatful of Smiles”

Hattingdon introduces new logo

Today we are excited to introduce to you Hattingdon’s new logo — inspired by and modeled on — her classic hat silhouette. Isn’t it fab?

Hattingdon creator Vivian Grant, who has created logos for all kinds of groups and businesses over the years, was so frustrated because she could not come up with anything she remotely liked.

“No matter what I tried, I just couldn’t ‘see it’,” she says, “so I gave up and let it go. Then suddenly, after all these years, there it was, in my mind’s eye. I rushed to the computer and created it in about 20 minutes!”

Take a look! We think she has done a really, really nice job. Simple and chic. It looks fabulous on product too, but more on that later. Here it is in an array of colours.

Want to see how she looks in it? Here she is modeling her new logo hat in gorgeous red.

Hattingdon wears her sparkling new logo hat in a gorgeous red.

So . . . . what do you think? We are hoping you are loving it as much as we are.

Thank you for stopping by, and see you again here soon.

NOTE: Since this posting, we have adopted what you see below as our log.

Hattingdon creator Vivian writes: I love Verdi’s Operas. One of my all-time favourites is ‘Aida’.

I created a scenario in my head that Hattingdon had been given a part in the chorus of ‘Aida’, and therefore would need a costume. Being a hatmaker (a cartoon one, of course) I imagined a headdress for her in two colour schemes.


Aida Gold


Aida Teal

How fun are they? I am leaning toward the teal, but also love the gold. What you think? Which one should she wear?

The Ankh

The ankh or key of life is an ancient Egyptian hieroglyphic symbol used in Egyptian art and writing to represent the word for “life” and, by extension, as a symbol of life itself.


Although not in this design, we found this fascinating too.

In Egyptian mythology, the snake symbol represented royalty and divinity. It symbolized the pharaoh’s role as lawmaker and maintainer of order, protecting the Egyptian people from the forces of chaos. The snake was also a symbol of protection, both for pharaohs and for everyday people.

The Opera

Set in Ancient Egypt, Aida is a timeless story of love and betrayal set against the backdrop of war. The story is a roller coaster of emotions told through Giuseppe Verdi’s powerful music.

Aida is an Ethiopian princess who is the captured slave to Amneris, daughter of Pharaoh. Both women are in love with the victorious Egyptian general Radames, but he loves only Aida.

The father of Aida, Amonasro, invades Egypt to rescue her, but is defeated and captured. Relentlessly jealous of the lovers, Amneris decides she will kill Aida and disgrace Radames. He is subsequently condemned as a traitor and buried alive in a dungeon tomb.

Aida joins her lover in his death chamber to die with him while Egyptian priests celebrate the country’s victory in the temple above them. A desperate, remorseful Amneris attempts to save Radames but her pleas for mercy are too late.

Thank you for spending time with us! Warm regards, Vivian.
