Couture Pillbox Hat - 'Silla' in black raffia with petersham ribbon trim

150.00 250.00

Hand-blocked and wired firm sinamay base overlaid with vintage open raffia. The trim is an intricate arrangement of wide cotton petersham ribbon. Lined with pure silk, and held in place with a simple elastic, to fit any head-size. This style is now discontinued, so the sample piece is available at 40% off.

Karen Henriksen’s couture creations combine traditional millinery materials and techniques with a fresh, contemporary aesthetic. Whilst often evocative of another era, these scultural pieces are distinctly modern. Many are one-off pieces, and all are very limited edition.

Care instructions

How to wear your Couture Hat
This pillbox hat is designed to be worn slightly forward and to the right, so it sits just above the right eye-brow. Place the elastic over the head and pull down to the nape of your neck, covering with your hair. The elastic should fit most heads comfortably, but if it feels a little loose, simply make a knot in the elastic.
