Known for her polished, career-wear aesthetic, Donna Karan has revolutionized accessible women’s fashion since the 1980s.

    By Chanel
    Located in Boca Raton, FL
    When Gabrielle Chanel opened her first boutique on the Rue Cambon in Paris in 1910, it was hats she debuted to her early clientele. Famous actresses of the day took note and began making her a name years before she unveiled the sportswear, perfume, and haute couture that would firmly establish the House of Chanel. Fine millinery remains a hallmark of the French megabrand nearly a century later, as exemplified in this remarkable hat by creative director Karl Lagerfeld. Inspired in part by British Regency-era men’s fashion, the Chanel 2009 Fall collection was feminine and poised, featuring frills, plisse ruffs, and georgette blouses. As seen as look #19 on that season’s runway, this charming black and white polka dot hat...

  • 1950s Balenciaga Haute Couture Black Velvet Jewel Toque Hat
    By Balenciaga
    Located in Boca Raton, FL
    Born in Spain in 1895, Cristóbal Balenciaga is renowned as one of the masters of haute couture. Drawing from strikingly decorative Spanish cultural influence, Balenciaga’s designs up until the mid- to late-twentieth century incorporated highly detailed beadwork, and hours or intricate embroidery. While mimicking the evolution of his design aesthetic, the millenary works created by the House of Balenciaga were not in fact conceptions of the designer himself, but designed by expert milliners Wladzio d'Attainville, and Ramón Esparza. Nonetheless, the hats produced compliment the couturier’s lavish aesthetic. This 1950s toque hat...
