'Marilyn' disc hat
‘Cinematic Starlets' is Natalie's latest couture millinery collection for the 2015-2016 season. Inspired by femme fatales of film noir, these ladies were dressed to kill (sometimes quite literally!) in low necklines, immaculate makeup, jewels, elbow length gloves and always, always a brilliant hat.

In her newest designs, we see Natalie create with her continued fascination of old world meets modern day. Headpieces come oversized in structural shapes or petite in pillbox and button bases. Embellishments are pared back in this collection; a scatter of feathered flowers, a single wired scroll, voluminous veiling, and leather shapes are appliqued onto the hats, with a deliberate simplistic touch allowing for focus on the shape of the hat. A new hat shape, the canotier also makes an appearance in blush and cream styled with veiling, welcoming a sense of effortless ease.
Using the highest level of millinery skills, ‘Cinematic Starlets’ features exclusive hand crafted millinery designs for the races, and special occasions.All of the hats are available for viewing at the boutique or online here.
Natalie and her team also offer a personalised bespoke service.
