Skopelos – A freeform sculptural sinamay hat with elegant curves. Perfect when you want something just a little bit different, to stand out from the crowd. I originally created this style for a local wedding shop, and it has been a popular design for several seasons.
It is named after the Greek Island, where I went on holiday long before Mamma Mia made it famous! The cobalt blue colour is so reminiscent of the painted shutters and doors on the white houses, and I like to think the shape is reminiscent of the waves on the beautiful beaches.
The hat is made from a cobalt blue and white sinamay strips, which are sculpted into curves, before adding a wire to stabilise the shape before pinning and sewing into shape.
It is mounted on a sinamay base, and secured to the head with a headband.
Not for the shy and retiring!
Skopelos is big! Its maximum brim width is 55 cm from left to right, and 40cm from back to front. As the base isn’t a full ‘crown’ it fits all sizes, and is secured to the head with a headband.
This can be made in other colours, please contact me to discuss and allow 4 weeks from order for delivery.
