Just in time for wedding season and Spring racing, we’ve launched our first online collection of hats, showcased in this millinery lookbook!
The beguiling hand blocked headpieces, designed by V V Rouleaux founder Annabel Lewis, combine exquisite craftsmanship with wit and character; ultra-feminine designs are punctuated with V V’s vintage lace, ornate embellishments, Lady Amherst feathers, and hand-painted silk flowers, making sure that each handcrafted design is one-of-a-kind.
We think these styles would be wonderful for a Spring wedding, Cheltenham Festival, and The Grand National.
Millinery design certainly runs in the family, as Annabel’s mother, Ann Pullin, worked for cutting-edge milliner Madge Chard on South Molton Street in London in the 1950’s creating hats for West End stage shows and cabinet displays at The Ritz. Brought up on stories of Ms Chard’s teapot shaped hats and unusual embellishments, Annabel was inspired to design her own collections and offer hat services using the many millinery components at V V Rouleaux including in-store bespoke hat creation and Hats & Headdresses Workshops.
If you have any questions about Annabel’s hats and the hat services we offer, please write to us in the comments box below or get in touch with the London or Bath shop for personal style advice.
We hope you love the new collection!
