GUEST CURATOR:
CHARLOTTE OLYMPIA DELLAL
Charlotte Olympia Dellal is a luxury shoe and accessories designer. After graduating from the prestigious LCF Cordwainer’s footwear design course, she established the Charlotte Olympia brand in 2008. Her designs are distinctively glamorous, feminine and playful, capturing the essence of Charlotte: Hollywood bombshell with a cheeky British nod.

Leopard Cat Hat by Piers Atkinson: : "All of my favourite things in one! A feline hat with a sense of fun. It could make day or night feel special, and for maximum impact I would team it head-to-toe with leopard print.".

Minnie by Sophie Beale: "I love a dramatic silhouette and this reminds me of a bygone era. I’d trust it to bring out my inner movie star or show that I mean business in a meeting. I’d pair it with a pencil skirt and matching jacket, gloves, stockings, fabulous heels and red lipstick.”

Jasmine by Benoit Missolin: "A classic and timeless hat with a playful twist. I would wear it all day, every day. Like red lipstick or great shoes, a hat can make the most simple outfit look super stylish when you don't have too much time to think about what to wear.”

REBEKAH ROY
Rebekah Roy is one of London’s top fashion stylists and creative consultants. Her blog Stylist Stuff combines a passion for adventure, fashion and travel with her personal story and a touching honesty. She is Creative Director at Candid Magazine and Fashion Director at Disorder Magazine.

PVC Beret by House of Flora:: "A beret is a classic hat and I think PVC just gives you that secret edge, you can’t help but have a bit more attitude and attitude always looks good!"

The Pink Balloon by Lara Jenson: "I think I’d like to see the world through a pink balloon. I might look a bit strange and even feel a bit self-conscious, and I’m not sure how people would react to me but once I got past that, I think everything would somehow just be different. Everything would look more magical, maybe even alien and I’d be happy.”

Kitty Beanie by Piers Atkinson: "I don’t like being cold in the winter and a beanie is the essential winter hat, it won’t get blown off in the wind and if you’re too hot in the tube you can just take it off. Plus, I like anything with little ears. Hats should make you happy.”

GUEST CURATOR:
LAURA BAILEY
London-born model and writer, Laura Bailey is Cultural Ambassador to the British Fashion Council, British Vogue contributing editor and an ambassador for Save The Children. Somehow, she still finds time to be cool...
Laura talks us through her three favourites pieces from HOOD's online curation:

Diadem by The Season: "Modern and sculptural, I love this for day or night, with a mannish suit, or a fairy-tale gown."

Kizhi by Awon Golding: "Early Madonna meets Georgia O’Keefe. A crisp white shirt and a sense of adventure."

Cry Baby by Gabrielle Djanogly: "I love the sense of mystery and occasion a veil lends to the wearer, this one is perfect. Drama over romance…with McQueen or Valentino in a dream world.”

GUEST CURATOR:
DAISY DE VILLENEUVE
London-born illustrator, designer and writer, Daisy de Villeneuve marked out a career with her quirky felt-tip illustrations. Daisy’s clients include Topshop, Nike, Kate Spade New York and the V&A. She has designed textiles for Zac Posen and exhibited in Liberty. Her distinctive style is matched only by a witty, sharp tongue in her books, He Said She Said, I Told You So and, most recently, I Should Have Said.

From HOOD's online curation, Daisy selected her three favourite hats:

Noel Stewart’s Cork Stud, because it’s too cool not to; Benoit Missolin’s Betty, for a summer garden party; and Gabrielle Djanogly’s Read, for sunny days in the south of France.
