Lady Ascot/ Bequeathed


Bequeathed to Anastasia N of London.
This is the hat that inspired and launched a 1000 ships, or ummm hats. It was the designing of this piece that not only inspired the bridal capsule but also began an obsessive experimentation in balancing the strongly feminine and masculine styles as one new genre. Lady Ascot was also one of the first to not bear our signature bee brooch and became a most satisfying symbol of a new form of minimalist glamour.

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.
