Cloche Hats by Behida Dolić of Yellowfield7

22 Mar

Seeing so many 20’s inspired fashions popping up in stores recently has me in a tizzy! Right now I’m in love with Yellowfield7’s felt cloches. Simple yet elegant, each is hand-blocked by designer Behida Dolić. My great-grandmother used to wear a more prim version back in the day, velvet black with some hand-sewn fabric flowers from what I remember. The Jazz Age was an adventurous time for fashion, especially if you were a milliner. Starlets, shopgirls and seamstresses tucked their newly bobbed hair into reinvented versions of turbans, toques, berets and kokoshniks. The look became a statement of confidence, assertiveness and a subtle outrageousness at the time American women were on the verge of earning the right to vote.
