The SC is drawn to hats that allow themselves to be molded into many different permutations or personalities.
The flexible shape changers of the millinery world!
This black lacquered straw hat with patent leather band from my hat shop in the 80’s takes me as far as my creativity allows. The possibilities are endless!
This hat was designed by Kokin HERE, who has a flair for the dramatic. Meeting Kokin many years ago in his showroom in NY during a hat shop buying trip was an experience that I will remember always!
This week my yoga teacher made the request of her students to “express your gaze as tender and unwavering.” The above shape allows The SC to practice off the mat, wondering if such feelings can be transmitted across the internet.
As soon as this chapeau hit the hat shop, I knew that it would be mine. However, I have been known to rent its lacquered beauty for special occasions. It needs more outings than The SC could ever provide.
These photos include a few of the shapes that were created in a short period of time. Give me an afternoon to play and this post could go on for days.

Kokin names his designs, and in this case, “The Funnel Of Love” lives up to its chosen title. It’s Visible Monday HERE at Not Dead Yet Style, and this versatile piece of headwear is joining Patti’s delightful party. This is a link-up not to be missed! Which is also true of Secondhand First HERE at the The Citizen Rosebud, where Bella is featuring a 90’s review.
Now it’s your turn to throw a little headwear love my way.
Please display your hat, headwrap, headpiece, fascinator, hair flower, headband or other adornment for your head that you adore, give The SC a JUNE HAT ATTACK and kindly link to Style Crone somewhere in your post. Can’t wait to see the beautiful creations that you share throughout the next week. Participation will be open through Saturday, June 7th.
