You wouldn’t even dream of showing up at a wedding of the Royal Family or any other event of British High Society without wearing a hat, a mere hairstyle just won’t do. In cases of urgent necessity, there are plenty of prestigious designers capable of solving any and all such problems - from the haute couture creations of hat designer Philip Tracey to the jewels of Laura Catchart, there’s plenty to choose. To start learning a bit more and prepare yourself, all you need to do is take a look at the website of the Victoria & Albert Museum and have a look at its historic hat collection (exclusively online) which spans an amazing 17 centuries. What you discover is that the mere hat does not exist - there are more than you could ever imagine, an infinite number of shapes, all satisfying the most far-flung needs and tastes. You’ll never again think of the hat as a simple accessory. Its magic, its charm, it all depends on the power to transmit messages of authority, affiliation, individuality, property, rebellion and, of course, style.
