Day Ninety-Nine / Hat Ninety-Nine: Black, rabbit-fur hat with black grosgrain ribbon detail (outside) and
red grosgrain ribbon detail (inside). Interior tag reads: "Anda & Masha."
Borrowed from the Bride's headgear archive, she says of it: "I think that was a J. Crew collaboration." A little sleuthing turns up that indeed it was -- back in the fall of 2011. A little more digging found the following stock description of the "Anda & Masha by Selima Faithful" hat posted in various places around the web. :
"Forever in search of the perfect hat, celebrity and fashion stylists Anda and Masha partnered up with Selima (best known for their chic eyewear) to create their own. Inspired by the edgy, bohemian whimsy of rockers from the '60s and '70s—and the fashionable birds who flocked backstage—each hat is crafted in a cellar-floor atelier hidden beneath Bond Street's cobblestones. We love this hat's feminine silhouette rendered in soft rabbit felt for a striking finish atop all this season's looks. Rabbit felt with cotton grosgrain and suede trim. Part of J.Crew Collection. Handmade in NYC."
Just in case you've lost count, tomorrow marks hat number 100 and one-fifth of the way toward my goal of a hat a day for 500 days. Unless a random hat comes my way before then, the one I've got planned for first of the triple digits is a special lid indeed.
Got hats? Send 'em. Hat requests? Let me know -- I love a challenge.
