Christys' Hats SS16 Press Day: Never Underestimate a Good Hat!

Since 1773 Christys' Hats has conquered the high-end hat industry as we now see many of their designs on the likes of Will.I.Am, One Direction, Kate Moss, Cara Delevingne, Myleene Klass, Beth Ditto, Justin Timberlake, The Libertines and many, many more. 

I had a great time checking out their range at their recent press day recently. In all honesty, I've never been a die-hard hat person but you seriously can't help but fall in love with them once you enter the store and that sense of luxury hits you. They have such a massive collection so there really is something for everyone... whether you're looking for something very formal like a feathered felt hat or something super chilled like a patterned baseball cap, you will 100% find it. 

Here I am rocking this beautiful purple felt hat with feathers. I was completely and utterly drawn to it because of the gorgeous, rich purple shade... perfect for this season.
 


Seeing it in person is a whole different experience... it's just divine!
Arriving with only a brief knowledge of the brand, it was really refreshing to see that they do offer hats at various price points. I was honestly only expecting hats above the £100 mark, which I suppose isn't even all that much for something of such quality anyway but Emily, their lovely PR Manager, proved me wrong and also introduced me to their recently launched range, CROWN By Christys. CROWN offers a collection of fresh, fun and contemporary headwear for the modern world.

I had a nosy look at the range on the site and I came across this two-toned beauty for only £45 which I have now ordered (talk about tempting). A lot of the upcoming CROWN styles will also be very reasonably priced which is good news for everyone!



So if you're a student or don't want to spend too much but still really crave that luxury from a hat that you can keep long-term, you'll probably be pleasantly surprised. 

Here are some more fun SS16 styles...


I could so see this looking fab on the beach!
Gorgeous artistic vibes added to sports-style caps with the Christys' x Liberty collab.

A pic from the store that I think really captures the heritage behind the brand & all its ties to the royals, the military & the police. 

So what do you guys think of the range? Are you a hat person yourself? I don't think I'll ever underestimate the power of a quality hat ever again!
