The Lauren

Bonnet

This is Lauren. As in Bacall. She is effortlessly chic. She weighs four ounces. She will not make you warm, or cause distress of any kind. She will shade your lovely nose. She goes with everything, even when the weather is scorching. And now, she may be yours, in your choice of color and size. Wear her to that dinner next week, or to the dog park, or better yet, to the movies – maybe one with Bogey and Bacall, or perhaps a little Danny DeVito and Billy Crystal in this heat.   Larry: Do you say the night was...


Rosalind

Bonnet

Smart, feminine, and ready to go where you need her, our Rosalind, like her namesake, stands on her own. Made from the lightest straw, Rosalind goes as well with a sweet little dress as she does with your favorite ripped jeans. We adore her, and we think you will too. Order yours here.


Garden parties and the like

Bonnet

The Miss Fisher ‘Tis the season of the summer gathering. Will it be a June wedding or a garden party that gets you in your finest? Our Miss Fisher, named after the inimitable Phryne of the murder mysteries (Netflix, my Dear), is the perfect companion to take along for these summer fetes. She weighs mere ounces, has a brim designed to flatter your lovely face, and offers the detail and elegance that complements the bias-cut dress and fitted jacket you’d planned on. Order her now in a color that suits. xo 


Mothers and Daughters: A History

Bonnet

  Lady Mary, Cora, and Edith Whether your preference is Shakespeare, Jane Austen, or Julian Fellows, the story and the drama around mothers and their daughters is a rich one. We prefer to focus on the positive, the nurturing, the traditions and the dress up. We named three of our prettiest cloches after the trio from Downton Abbey – the Cora, the Lady Mary and the Edith (there was a Sybil, but alas…) – and may we suggest one for your darling mom, and one for you, and perhaps a sister or two, would be the perfect way to celebrate...


What to wear to meet the Queen?

Bonnet

You’ve been invited to luncheon. The invitation arrived today, in its cream envelope, along with the suggestion that ladies are, in this case, expected to wear smart day dress: a suit or dress with hat and gloves, high heels, and a handbag to complete the outfit.  What to do? One wants to be respectful and look her best, while not compromising on her ability to SEE the Royal hostess and surrounds.   Claudette Might we suggest a small cloche with just that bit of brim? Perfectly designed to flatter in the most unobtrusive way. Please do send a photo after the...
