Read by Gabrielle Djanogly: "Inspired by the wonderful Rhoda, Lady Birley I'd wear this hat with old cords, a silk scarf and gardening gloves for Summer pruning".

Dakota by Harvy Santos: "The irresistible pull of Grace Jones's amazing May Day character in View To A Kill makes this the ultimate winter cover-up.

Marlene by Adele Mildred: "This is a great evening hat, I love the veiling over the eyes and the wonderful upwards movement of the fabric. It would be perfect with a floor length vintage Schiaparelli cocktail suit”.
