This dramatic black, pink and purple straw hat makes a bold statement! It's just the right hat for Kentucky Derby, Church, Royal Ascot or any event where you’re dressed to impress. The brim of this hat was sustainably upcycled from a vintage hat and then married to a new black straw crown (top). It is embellished with a magenta purple silk band, Magenta and black vintage feathers and three handmade silk purple, magenta and spring green roses created from a Betsey Johnson silk fabric. A classic oval Downton Abbey brim also sets it apart from mass produced hats. Fun, bold and beautiful, just like you!
