New for this Autumn/Winter season, here’s my version of the sailor cap. Available in any size or fabric you fancy for a cheeky but super stylish look. There are few in stock in my eBay shop, but please get in touch if you’d like to commission one to your head size. Same terms apply for my flat caps!

Glam Satin Turbans

1920s Glam Satin Turban Hat - Anna Chocola® 2013

1920s Glam Satin Turban Hat – Anna Chocola® 2013

I was inspired to create this collection of ultra glamorous satin turban hats by the “Luxe, Calme et Volupté” lifestyle of the 1920s “Bright Young Things”.

I collect vintage brooches to ornate them and add sparkle to the shimmer. Some have veiling too.

These hats are available on request, made to measure in the colour you desire. Contact me to make an order.
