"I was in Italy and I saw this magnificently elegant woman in a big straw hat, and I was so entranced by her that I wanted to see her face. Well, every time I tried to look at her, she'd turn her head and demurely cover her face with her hat," recalled the fashion designer I was interning for, as she tried on some custom-made hats for her trip to Venice.
Hats are sensual, mysterious, entrancing -- and excellent for bad hair days. When a former schoolmate who now attends MIT introduced me to GALVIN-nized Headwear in Boston, I had two thoughts:
- I really need to visit Boston again.
- I really need to visit a milliner again.
P.S. For equally beautiful hats with San Francisco-flair, visit Deanna Gibbons Millinery.
