This is a wonderful stylish straw Summer hat from the 1970s by the fabulous designer, Phillip Somerville. With a typical deep crown and wide brim, the hat is decorated with a beige shiny vinyl flower, fringing and band around the base of the crown.  The weave is beautiful and fine and smooth, with a shiny almost silky sheen to it. The brim edge is folded and stitched to conceal a structural wire.

”Philip Somerville is one of today’s best known milliners and was awarded the Royal Warrant – Milliner to the Queen in 1995. Established in 1972, Philip Somerville began as a wholesale supplier to high end department stores in London and New York, such as Harrods and Bergdorf Goodman. In 1987, he opened his hat salon in Bond Street for private clients”. Credit: vintagefashionguild
