William Chambers Millinery: Spring/Summer 2010

Just 3 short years ago, Scottish textile designer William Chambers took a hat-making class at Metropolitan University, creating a collection that was shown to great acclaim at Glasgow Fashion Week in April 2007. Fast forward to his Spring/Summer 2010 collection, shown here, and it is easy to see that Chambers is taking this fashionably antiquated craft to new elevations, posthaste. It is a happy marriage of old meets new, where traditional materials such as felt and synamay join forces with contemporary materials like latex, plastic and metallic leather to create these modern, often sculptural, always feminine creations.
