Atypical London hats are all the rage, and the Olivia Roat Spring/Summer 2013 collection is filled with them. These delightful side-sweep chapeaus are vintage inspired takes on the bold hats that are often photographed on the heads of the Queen's entourage.
Blending together English couture with pin-up chic, Roat's line of hats are high fashion diva-worthy. Feathers decorate the top of silver berets that teeter unevenly on your head. Most English hats incorporate blooms of roses, orchids and lilies along with organza and tulle. Roat incorporates these materials and enhances them by adding vintage studs, or changing the shape of the hat by piling on soft fabric to create a waterfall of red material.
The Olivia Roat Spring/Summer 2013 is quite posh in a modernized way.
