When we are invited to a special occasion or event, the first think (actually question) that get through our mind is “What should I wear?”. I bet, always. Of course something elegant, but not too basic (that we can wear every day and may look boring, unnoticed). I am still the supporter of “less is more”, but that doesn´t necessarily mean boring. Essentialist, ok, but for special, not everyday situations and events we should dress with a bit of an edge. Simple, yes, but special. A best way to get that is to match your great outfit with a nice, unusual accessory, like a hat for example.

Few days ago I discovered “House of Flora” (maybe you know it already), a fashion design and consultancy studio located in London, specializing in avant-garde headwear for the catwalk and not only. They regularly collaborate with Haute Couture and ready to wear designers, like Givenchy, Bill Blass, Diane Von Furstenberg, etc. The headwear is often driven by materials: PVC, perspex, felt, leather, wood veneer, aluminum, steel and nylon and influenced by strong geometry and historical figures, as well as by concepts in modern art. Beside headwear, House of Flora produces also jewelry and an eyewear line all made in the UK. A great addition to your style; a touch of great design that will make your look very unique, personal.
Some products are available to buy in their web-shop.
