I love this Phillip Treacy formed Beret. It is a hat that is so simple and yet so perfect, you can't quite work out how they made the shape.
It is my alternative to the ever present winter fedora. Although I love fedoras, sometimes its nice to have an alternative that can also be dressed up and down and remains classic and simple.
This hat was a christmas present some years ago from my beloved Aunt, who in the tradition of all great relatives was the fashion-gift-giver to me as a child. Every present she ever gave me, held inside its immaculate store wrapping, a wonderful treasure from Harvey Nicks (who had a wonderful children's department at the time!) or Selfridges.
