All In The Name


One of the things that I most enjoy is naming my hats – one of my favourites from the Winter Collection is called the ‘Camilla’ – as I first got the idea for the new collection after I made a special ‘Village People’ style retro sailor’s cap for an old friend of mine Camilla Campion-Awwad.

It’s very sexy, with a zebra strip, and she loved it so much that I decided to make a few other variations. These are more contemporary than my traditional style but I hope that  in time they can become classics of their own.

Camilla has always been a huge supporter and inspiration with her love for flamboyant and individual pieces she always get noticed for her style wether it’s more edgy street wear or sophisticate occasion wear.

    Hey amazing hats..

    Especially the hat in the second picture is unique. I never saw this type of hat before.

    I think the “Camilla” hats about which you have described here are similar to bucket hats in appearance. I also love to wear bucket hats whenever I go out.

    As, I am very concious about my skin so, I prefer to wear these hats because these are best to protect my skin from from harmful sun rays.
