As ever, Gigi Burris’ training as a couture milliner is evident with her exquisitely imagined Autumn Winter 2014 collection. Imbued with a dark femininity, decayed elegance and her signature delicate approach, the hats speak of an easy-to-wear luxury and high fashion sensibility. The range features velour felt fedoras, petite brimmed newsboy caps, baseball hats, cashmere beanies, wide brimmed hats, and striking veils in a palette of antique white, black and cardinal red. The fine finishing of each piece harks back to the artform of a bygone era, given a thoroughly modern update. Hand=finished detail such as hand-pressed leather butterflies, gold foiling, Swarovski crystals, cashmere and couture feather-work complete the range with contemporary richness.

ABOUT GIGI BURRIS: Gigi Burris Millinery was founded in 2010, on a passionate love of both headwear and unique luxury. Inspired by the craft of an art that is slowly dying and reveling in the idea that a smaller group of people are able to preserve the art of hat making, with only the finest material and couture sewing techniques being used. Gigi’s ongoing interest in millinery was heightened after studying in Paris and frequent visits to the old world mercerie shops. Upon returning she studied under New York based couture milliner Leah Chalfen, at Parsons School of Design and then apprenticed with Leah in her personal studio. After graduating with a BFA from Parsons in May 2009, where Gigi was nominated for the Designer of the Year award, her one of a kind hats and made to order ready to wear began to receive attention from the press. Celebrity fans of the brand include Rihanna, Angelina Jolie, and Lady Gaga and she frequently works with leading stylists including Karl Templer, Patti Wilson, and Kate Lanphear.
