New York, United States
Lisa Battaglia designs hats that reinterpret vintage aesthetics to live in the modern world. Drawing on her unusual free-form technique and her uncanny fashion instinct, she creates sophisticated dramatic hats that recall a bygone era and yet are utterly of the moment. Each hat is a geometric work of art that magically provides its wearer with more than one look through a simple turn of the brim.
Lisa draws on personal memories and iconic images to create handmade pieces that are simultaneously classic and avant garde. Seeing old styles in a contemporary setting spark her creativity too: a man in an old school suit and fedora walking down a street in a hipster Brooklyn neighborhood; burlesque dancers on the red carpet in Hollywood; art deco architecture lining cobble stone streets in Puerto Rico. The fine details of another time set against the familiar backdrop of our own provide rich contrast and an interesting point of view that find their way into every hat. Each hat is one of a kind, like a snowflake, no two hats are alike! "I often refer to my aesthetic as modern vintage. To me, there is such beauty in merging the craftsmanship of old world millinery with modern colors, shapes and fabrics." - Lisa Battaglia Please note: all hats are made to order - please allow 3-4 weeks for delivery.Read less
