Hello there. Our journey through the alphabet continues. Welcome to the Letter “P”.
Vivian has selected two vintage hats this time around. Let’s go!
Our first offering is a smart black and tan hat created in Hattingdon’s distinctive classic silhouette. Vivian named the design Paige.
The Paige hat features alternating stripes of black and tan and white, that partially extends to the crown, which is adorned with a coordinating button.
A very smart look. She can go just about anywhere in this hat.
This is one of Vivian’s earliest designs and an all-time favourite of hers and Hattingdon followers — a colorful mod cap she named Peggy.
The hat is made up of sections of lime green, bright orange and raspberry pink, patterned with white floral inspired shapes and rings. It has a lime green brim and capped off with a bright orange button.
Vivian adds, “I so love the shape of the hat, the design and the colorful decoration. It is bright and fun and cheery, and makes me feel happy. I had the Peggy design on a tote bag for many years, and it was absolutely amazing the attention it got.”
Hattingdon had a fashion hat beginning with the letter “F” named Fleur, but not a single classic hat. Then Vivian discovered that the artwork for the fashion hat is . . . gone! Where to, who by, who knows.
Vivian saw this an opportunity to have some creative fun. She decided to reimagine the Fleur design — both as a classic hat and a fashion hat. They are colorful, fun and quite stylish. We trust you will agree. Look!
On to the fashion hat, which is equally scrumptious.
Instead of featuring the blossom as a pattern, Vivian used as an adornment. Here she is.
We hope you love them as much as we do, and they bring you a “hatful of smiles”.
