Lisa Tan Millinery at The Eternal Headonist

Posted by

Today is Day 3 in the 10 Days of Spring Hats, and on this sunny and positive day it is most apt to announce the cheerful headwear of Lisa Tan Millinery!

Perth-born, London-based Lisa Tan is one half of the unstoppable racing fashion duo "On Track On Trend" and together with Angela Menz they run the race wear bible of a blog by the same name. Between them they have taken out nearly every racing fashion prize the World has to offer, so they really know how to make a racing outfit look really special and individual. We love them because they don't stick to the tried, tested, formulaic and (we feel) sometimes boring look that constitutes racing fashion these days, they always do things with humour and a twist, which people are often afraid to try. But these two aren't and it really pays off!

Lisa's millinery is a delicate mix of that humour and playfulness, but put together with classical elegance. She has pieces like the Dylan featured below, which is outwardly playful but inwardly serious - seriously well made that is! It is fabulously hand blocked and hand stitched, and coupled with luxurious silks and marabou feather trims. It beautifully complements the more grown-up pieces in the collection such as the Shelley which is full of smooth, elegant lines and brilliant texture contrasts.  

Her SS14 range is called The Pen & The Sword and is full of references to literary classics, with her pieces given names such as Dylan, Shelley, Maya, Jane, Louisa and Alice, and her custom designed silk "ink splat" print and feather quills being literal literary quotes in her millinery lookbook.

Lisa is showing at London AW14/15 fashion week this year, which is a well deserved accolade for such a fine contemporary milliner.  

We hope you have as much fun with Lisa's pieces as we do this season, it's impossible not to!
