Hats off Thursday: The Vivien Sheriff 'Britannia' collection launches in Fortnum & Mason
In celebration of such an exciting year, with both the Jubilee and the Olympics, British Milliner Vivien Sheriff has created a new range of Britannia themed hats and headpieces. The range will be launching in Fortnum & Mason at the beginning of June.
Move over Geri, we're all about the Union Jack this year! There are three styles in the range. The Calypso Britannia feathered Union Jack style head piece (£595) the Union Jack hat with feathers (£730) and the Fleur Britannia - Union Jack Fleur headpiece (£99)
Fashion and accessories buyer at Fortnum & Mason Amanda Ware discussed the range further: "The pieces land in-store just in time for the start of the Great British racing season, all three styles make a statement, capturing the essence of British spirit. Vivien Sheriff Designs have always been popular at Fortnum & Mason so we're really excited to see our customer's reaction to the range; we're expecting them to be a huge hit, particularly for Ladies Day at Royal Ascot."
What do you think bag ladies? Love the over-the-top Britannia look, or wary of spending so much on something that will inevitably be out of fashion by the end of the Olympics?
