Navy medium button style headpiece, of cotton material, with detachable "Open Tulips" feature in hand-dyed satin.
I had a thought at the start of my millinery journey more than a year ago - To create something innovative. Headpieces which can have interchangeable features. Slipping my mind as I focused on the traditional millinery skill building, until my fabulous friend Louise Campion said to me a few months back: "If I'm commissioning one it would defo be a neutral one that I could swap bits on for life". The thought came flooding back and I worked on the concept over the past two months.
I have great pleasure in introducing you to this, my "Eternal" Collection. I will add new features to it regularly, and new bases also (keep and eye out for new products being added to this Collection). The intention is that the customer purchases a neutral base, with a feature of their choosing, and can swap on new features which will be made available for purchase over time.
All headpieces are made to order. Please allow a minimum lead time of 2 weeks for Collection pieces. You are more than welcome to arrange a visit to view and try on the sample headpiece if you wish before purchase. Alternatively, videos of the headpiece can be made available upon request.
Please be advised that choice of colours shown for the Collection headpieces may not be exactly as they appear on screen. Swatches of material can be posted to the customer upon request, for the standard An Post packet cost. If you wish to colour match a Collection headpiece with an outfit, it is advised to avail of the Hats by Rachel Custom Colours Service.
