    • Wide grosgrain hatband with a large flat bow in the same color.

    Lucy Puci (Loosey Poosey) was the brainchild of Lucylle Smith Gilbert who rose from apprentice to principal designer for Chicago based millinery company Lemington Inc. Gilbert designed hats for first ladies Mamie Eisenhower and Pat Nixon. Another loyal hat buyer was Carol Channing. In the company’s heyday, the company produced over 900 hats per day under various labels. Gilbert, famous for designing 10 – 15 different hat styles per day, had a very interesting way of working. Instead of sketching her ideas she drew inspiration from the materials on hand. Other labels by the company were Lemington and Sam Budwig. Lemington closed sometime in the late 1960s. Gilbert died in 1994 at the age of 86.
    Breton style which means a rounded or flat-crowned hat with a brim that turns up around the edges, originally worn by peasants in Brittany, a region in France.

    Innes was a major department store in Wichita, Kansas.

    • Outstanding collector's hat designed by Gabriela Ligenza
    • Made by the legendary milliner Marzi Brothers in Florence.
    • High crown Breton in purple knit and horsehair.
    • Wide-brim.  

    Hair taken from the manes and tails of horses was widely used in millinery in the 19th Century to that 1910s. It was used much less in later decades as synthetic horsehair became available. Most 20th century hats, like this one, are made of synthetic horsehair, usually crinoline.

    British milliner Gabriela Ligenza has been designing bespoke hats for over 25 years and divides her time between London and Florence. Her hat quality is comparable to Phillip Treacy and Steven Jones. This hat was made by the Marzi Brothers, another legendary milliner who has been in business since 1924.
