Ok Just to clarify things...



I didnt make a hat for the movie Precious. There is NO David Mason hat in Precious so dont think there is or ever WAS. I made a hat for the GIRL who plays her for a shoot last week but it turns out that though the photographer commissioned it and liked it Precious' publicist said it was "Not her" once it GOT NEAR FACE. Which I totally understand, I mean it ISNT her but I was told they were going for a "Grace Jones" vibe which is sort of the OPPOSITE of HER, so thats why I made it, but it isnt "her" at all so you wont see it on her head. I think it probably looked like a MACHETE IN A PUMPKIN on her face like how it does on MINE... so they shot it on some SNOWGRESS from Berlin who plays a VAMPIRE in some new movie... Far more my target audience anyway.... It is interesting when you see the knife in the pumpkin because it IS what this hat is and when I think of what I said about "Fierce" being WELL STYLED RAGE you can see what I meant very clearly here. I guess if you look at my hats they are all "aggressive"... interesting..... hmmm..

Some of your hats, like this one are so beautifully chic and simple that they would amazing shot on women in a dignified Avedon like style of photography.... maybe a book of hats?

No. My friend asked me if I wanted to see it and of course I did so he put me on the list.

So you call it a machete through a pumpkin and then grin like that for the photo? What!

Anyway I'm disturbed because I actually get frowny face when I check into Google Reader and there's no HOV posts to enjoy.

PS I'm Carrying the Parisian Pastry flag for you for a couple of weeks. I have pain au chocolat and Cafe Creme each morning and some glistening raspberry fruit treat on top of sugared custard at least once a day for breakfast.

Un chapeau that would make Coco Chanel jealous.

Dave it is so haute couture that only a true distinct fashioista might be comfortable in it
I like it and think it would terrorize with severity if it was in royal purple

I love your blog and I think you're amazing. I bought two T-shirts from SIU recently, which I wear all the time.

That hat is awesome - It's alost racing season here in Australia and I can tell you now there won't be one woman at the races in anything NEAR that beautiful.

That li'l number is slickly genius!
Meanwhile, that fiesty horned-out cock of a parrot that was driving hard into the back of that BBC guy's head must be giving you a fierce hat idea.
