Sophie Beale Millinery at The Eternal Headonist

Posted by

Sophie Beale is a milliner you need to know about. Seriously! Her pieces are absolutely exquisite and eloquently combine classic elegance, exceptional technique and a keen eye for design, providing a unique, contemporary fusion of the modern and classical.  

But when you read her CV, it's no surprise that her millinery is quite so amazing - she's worked for all of the UK's millinery greats; Phillip Treacy, Noel Stewart, Gina Foster, Jane Taylor and was headhunted to work in Stephen Jones's couture workroom. Now that's the kind of head hunting we like! 

She was named Britain's "Hottest New Milliner" in 2012, taking out the hotly contested Grazia "Hat Factor" competition as judged by Stephen Jones and Phillip Treacy beating over 100 other milliners in the process, and when you see the workmanship in these pieces, we'd have to say she's amongst the best milliners in the World right now.  

We have actually landed a bit of a coup with the collection of headpieces we are stocking from Sophie this Spring, as it's from her SS15 European collection, which hasn't even been released in Europe yet as they're just getting into AW14, so Down Under we are ahead of the game for once! But you'll agree these pieces really work beautifully with the "white" trend we're seeing from Australian labels this summer.

The Collection is called "New-Natural" and from these pieces you can see the natural materials and shapes, seamlessly working together with the modern design and treatments. Whether it be the sheen of the lacquered wool in the Ombré Lacquered Bonnet, the clean lines of the Ombré Twist Beret or the pressed flowers suspended in acrylic in the Gypsophilia Visor and Suspended Petal Button, the old and the new are effortlessly married. So delicate and feminine, but also strong and assertive. 

We feel very proud to be bringing you the fine work of Sophie Beale Millinery at The Eternal Headonist -  if we could own all of Sophie's hats we would!
