Every journey starts somewhere and my journey into the world of millinery began with a trilby a silk tie and a vintage brooch, so this line is very close to my heart and has brought me to where I am now.
I have loved trilby hats ever since I was a kid watching gritty, noir black and white movies. The Wallace Trilby collection is an homage to and a celebration of the TRILBY HAT.
I adorn them with ties (as hat bands), embroidery, beautiful tartans or tweeds, spectacular silk flowers or dazzling beading and the materials I use to decorate the hats include vintage fashions bin ends of carefully selected textiles.
As always each trilby hat is unique and a one off, created from my imagination.
To clean this hat, use a simple jet of steam from your iron with a nice soft brush. If you have an unwelcome stain from a passing bird, don't use any harsh cleaning products-some warm water and gentle sponging should do the trick!
Let it dry naturally in the warm environment of your home away from sources of heat, such as radiators.
