I am definetely a hat lover, long time fascinated by the millinery art. I personally own a small hats collection, but far away from the astonishing creations I am about to describe.
Today I want to introduce you to Moody & Farrell, a creative duo composed by solo hat maker Eloise Moody and her spiritual partner, deceased grandfather Michael John Farrell.
Eloise Moody has the rare quality to realize hats that carry the elegance and the grace of the tradition with an extraordinary creative twist, futuristic, sometimes.
Exploring her collection, is like travelling in a undefined century, where nature, irony and a powdery nobility smoothly and magically melt.
The Spring Summer ’14 collection is really outstanding, with its sophisticated entanglement of different inspirations. Other reviews describe it as an Elizabethan and Baroque blend, but I also see a Spanish/South American influence (traditional and religious).
What matters is that I love very much Eloise’s work and I hope to have chance to show some of her creations in my styling work one day.
