Couture milliner “proud” to inspire 2023 signature brooch

2 min read

On Valentine’s Day, we are delighted to unveil our Wear A Hat Day 2023 signature brooch based on the gorgeous ‘Love’ hat design by couture milliner Misa Harada.

Renowned for her hybrid of functionality and ornate elegance, Misa’s main goal is to encourage more people to wear hats on any occasion. Her signature whimsical style hats are tweaked with her couture essence, and she has caught the attention of artists such as Janet Jackson, Britney Spears, Jennifer Aniston and The Rolling Stones. Misa’s collections are sold in more than 100 retail outlets across 15 countries.

Misa said: “I lost a close childhood friend to a brain tumour. We were at the same high school in Japan and I keep in touch with other classmates to remember his life and the wonderful time we shared. Having this premature loss from a brain tumour in my life means this is a personal cause for me and I am so proud to have my ‘Love’ hat as the inspiration for this brooch.”

This exclusively designed brooch is limited to a run of just 500, each with a numbered certificate of authenticity. Purchase yours for just £10 via our shop or call our team to place your order directly on 01908 867200.
