The Pillbox Thriller


This resurrection began with one simple vintage straw hat. We then changed the french netting and extended it over the face, added another vintage find of a tulle fascinator teetering at the back, a single silver bee brooch, a jewelled headband around the pillbox. The result is something both monochromatic and magnificent. We have also tried the hat on backwards and created another luscious look.

This vintage hat is a size medium and fits most heads with a circumference of between 57/58cm. Every Resurrection top hat comes with a set of self-adhesive sizing inserts to allow the wearer to adjust to their preference. These handy sizing inserts can be easily concealed under the inside band of hat. Depending on fit desired, an insert can be added to the centre-front as well as the centre-back. We will send 2 sets of inserts for the larger vintage hats and one-set with the small and medium hats.
