It's Gone to our Heads!
We've just come across the fabulous Hat Gallery M/V in Mayfair's Conduit Street, opened a week or so ago. This is such great news as there are so very few great hat shops in London and trying on hats in a department store (or worse still, a chain store!) is so very "non U". The shop is a beautiful gallery and is called such as it houses some amazing pieces of furniture and lighting from Europe - perfect items on which to display the hats. In addition to Philip Treacy and UK milliner Karen Henriksen (well worth keeping an eye on!) there are some amazing concoctions from all over America and Europe and there's a men's section too. I succombed to the most beautiful woven leather pull on from Patricia Underwood. It cost an arm and a leg but will be in my wardrobe until I can pass it on (or pass away) to the next generation. Anyone with an eye for headwear should make a visit .... (We hear the girls at Vogue have their eyes on the beautiful white straw hat pictured aboved)
