Just in time for Ascot Piers Atkinsons floral summer hats have arrived at Fenwick’s of Bond Street.
Straw and sinamay in natural, pinks and citrics are swathed in blousy blooms picked straight from the English Country Garden; poppies, roses, delphiniums and phlox vie with the occasional exotic orchid. Pearl veiling can be pinned into hair or drawn over the face as desired and these hats are even reversible – bringing the height of the flowers to the front of the face or pushing towards the crown as the wearer wishes.
Piers Atkinson’s floral pieces have been sported by outrageous style icons Lady Gaga and Zandra Rhodes.
This collection, retaining Atkinson’s signature sense of fun, is as ripe for an outing at Royal Ascot as much as the society wedding, a spin on the dance floor or for simple, dressed-to-kill style.
