The Ever Fabulous Hats Of London, Milan And Paris Runways, SS2014 .

Today I am posting long overdue round up on the hats of London, Milan and Paris Runways for SS2014. Usually, I like to feature all hats presented during the season but this time is a bit different: there were so many hats that when I tried to fit them all in one single post, Blogger repeatedly cancelled upload due to a long running application. I love seeing such a tremendous diversity of hats on runways: from simpler versions to statement pieces - they all tell a story. Since it looks like it would be impossible to fit all hats, I thought I would post the selection of those hats which spoke to me and those I thought presented the art form of millinery at its best. Every hat or head piece in this post is my personal favorite. There were quite a few WOW moments during SS2014 . For example, the return of the sinamay.  I don't like to use sinamay in my personal collections, but I do use it in general production on occasion. Sinamay in my opinion, has a tired, overused effect but I absolutely loved seeing it walking the Armani show as well as the show by Ann Demeulemeester . Some hats completely took me by surprise in a good way of course, some made my heart skip a bit or two but than again - high fashion hats do seem to have this effect on me. I hope you enjoy the selection. :-) Check in next Tuesday as I am planning to start posting "Manolete" segment - a story I got literally obsessed with and the story I simply had to tell in hats. Wishing everyone beautiful weekend ahead! :-)
