Mens


Ben Short brimmed trilby with a pear shaped crown, made using separate crown and brim pieces. This method of construction gives the hat more ease, making the hat better at moulding to the wearer's head. Made in felt, perfect for seemingly endless chilly winters.

Code: DIAW10AM0701Ben:Felt-Loden/Loden - RRP ÂŁ140.00 Code: DIAW10AM0702Ben:Felt-Loden - RRP ÂŁ140.00

Blaze Based on the famous Deerstalker. The crown, moulded in one with the indentations mirroring the more usual sewn tweed cap. Classic double peak and ear flaps. The peaks shield the wearer from sun and rain. The felt is warm and will mould to the head, the ear flaps are for windier days.

Code: DIAW10AM1801Blaze:Felt-Midnight - RRP ÂŁ150.00 Code: DIAW10AM1802Blaze Zero:Felt-Ruby Red - RRP ÂŁ200.00

5


Eddie Traditional short brim, pear shaped crown made from the same two blocks as the classic narrow brimmed trilby. The brim has been cut away, leaving the front of the brim only... a cross between a trilby and a peaked cap. Classic Petersham band with a folded knot finish.

Code: DIAW10AM0801Eddie:Felt-Brown/Brown - RRP £140.00 Code: DIAW10AM0802Eddie:Felt-Gold/Gold - RRP £140.00

6


Freddie Influenced by the fedora, the hat has a smooth front to the crown, the indent at the top is shallow to the edge. The brim is wide with a gentle curve upward at the back, it has a tilt at the front for that caddish charmer look.

Code: DIAW10AM1701Freddie:Felt-Beige/Charcoal - RRP ÂŁ215.00 Code: DIAW10AM1701Freddie:Felt-Beige - RRP ÂŁ215.00

Womens


Baseball Based on an original 1940s baseball shape the unusually long, wide brim is perfect for sunny days. It is just such an incredible shape, worn on the back of the head or pulled low over the face. Very useful for sunbathing as there is no brim at the back to contend with when lying back.

Code: DIAW10AW1501Baseball:Straw-Natural (PhotoID HHH7091, 7144) - RRP ÂŁ140

9


Button Full of drama and fun. The small round base is perfectly versatile. This version of the Button shape is extremely flattering. The wings on the axis for movement and elegance. Or the Swarovski crystal version, splitting the light making it ideal for evening events. Stays on via an elastic that can be placed under the hair like a hair band, or elastic loops through which hair grips can be positioned. Made in felt, the finish is warm and luxurious. Easily compliments any outfit and any time of day.

Code: DIAW10AW0107Button:Felt-Wine (PhotoID HHH3584) - RRP ÂŁ110.00 Code: DIAW10AW01Button:Sinamay-Midnight (PhotoID HHH3640) - RRP ÂŁ100.00

10


Fascinator The felt, with its luxurious warmth and silky sheen, is cut, twisted and gathered to catch the light. A piece of net draped over the forehead creating drama. Worn on the diagonal of the head it lengthens the neck and highlights cheekbones. Elegant and easy to wear. Elastic loops through which to place kirby grips and a choice of long elastic going under the hair or small alligator clips.

Code: DIAW10AW2204Fascinator:Felt-Midnight/Hunter/Ruby Red/Black (PhotoID HHH3588) - RRPÂŁ60.00

11


Faye The perfect neat dome crown with the heavy brim is gorgeous, romantic and warm. Perfect for those sunny autumn days. Wide brims are both flattering and flirtatious.

Code: DIAW10AW1101Faye:Felt-Kahki/Loden (PhotoID HHH3564) - RRP ÂŁ230.00

12


Gather Strongly influenced by the Trilby wearing-women of Film Noir. It is a more feminine and easier shape to wear than a traditional Trilby, with more versatility. Without the brim at the back there is more you can do with the wearer's hair, from a plain ponytail to a complicated up-do/bun. It can be tilted on the head and brought further down the forehead. The brim is extremely flattering and flirtatious but does not require the wearer to lift their chin as would be necessary when wearing a more classic man's shape. There is an immediate change to the way a head is held when wearing this hat, confident and engaging.

Code: DIAW10AW1601Gather:Felt-Coral/Damson (PhotoID HHH7070) - RRP ÂŁ190

13


Gracie Wonderfully comfortable and cosy due to the magic of felt. A sophisticated shape, gathered at the front and held in place by a knot embellished by Swarovski crystals. A bright and fun bit a glamour from the past.

Code: DIAW10AW0301Gracie:Felt-Purple (PhotoID HHH3504) - RRP ÂŁ110.00

14


Letty This is a great low-key winter hat, comfortable, warm and weatherproof. The short peak is perfect for the elements and frames the face beautifully. Finished with a band of the matching material or Petersham ribbon. Easily the most popular Didi hat, it will last year after year and, with a little care, keep looking new.

Code: DIAW10AW1003Letty:Felt-Brown (PhotoID HHH3541, HHH3656) - RRP ÂŁ120.00 Code: DIAW10AW1001Letty:Felt-Mink (PhotoID HHH7105, HHH6868, HHH7116) - RRP ÂŁ120.00

15


Lev Just the prettiest Cloche shape. Perfect for the winter elements. Banded by Petersham ribbon finished with a neat knot. Or for a bit more flare, the concertinaed Petersham is covered with silver leaf. Elegant and neat. Easily the smartest winter hat around.

Code: DIAW10AW0901Lev:Felt-Alabaster/Dark Wine/Silver (PhotoID HHH7096, 6880) - RRP ÂŁ160

16


Margot This hat is an original 1940s beret shape and it can be worn in almost any direction. This makes it both endlessly flattering and unique to the wearer. Made from felt it is a lovely winter hat for everyday or for a smart occasion. The finishings on the Margot add height and drama but it can also be made as a plain beret for a more minimalist look.

Code: DIAW10AW0403Margot:Felt-Charcoal/Multi (PhotoID HHH7130) - RRP £140.00 Code: DIAW10AW0404Margot:Felt-Wine (PhotoID HHH7133) - RRP £160.00 Code: DIAW10AW0407Margot:Felt-Brown (PhotoID HHH7587) - RRP £150.00

17


Pasty Reminiscent of a military style hat and designed to sit a little off kilter, it has a gentle curve on the underside to fit snuggly to the head. Fixed in position with an elastic going under the hair or little loops through which hair grips can be placed. This can be worn with the point facing forwards or backwards, the smooth curve at the front worn a little forward to the edge of the forehead. Any way this hat is worn it will add an extra dimension to the wearer's look. The photographed version is made in mohair fur giving the hat has a lovely texture and tactile softness.

Code: DIAW10AW0501Pasty:Felt-Mohair Loden (PhotoID HHH6841, HHH7141) - RRP ÂŁ110

18


Rosie A winter twist to the classic 'Land Girls' style of elegantly covering the hair with a topknotted handkerchief. Very flattering and instantly adds a bit of nostalgia to a look. Made in felt it will mould to the wearer's head the more it is worn.

Code: DIAW10AW0201Rosie:Felt-Ruby Red (PhotoID HHH3496) - RRP ÂŁ115.00 Code: DIAW10AW0201Rosie:Felt-Leopard (PhotoID HHH7038) - RRP ÂŁ115.00

19


Segment An attractive 1950s influenced shape, traditionally designed to be placed on the back of the head. The curve on the underside and each segment gradually moulding the outward shape in a stepped arc. Like many of the small Didi hats this style can essentially be placed anywhere on the head. An elastic to go under the hair and loops for more particular placing. The swirl finishing adds dimension and movement. Alternatively the warmth of the reflected light given by the gold leaf covered filagree cut out.

Code: DIAW10AW0603Segment:Felt-Off-White (PhotoID HHH8122, HHH7601) - RRP ÂŁ140.00 Code: DIAW10AW0601Segment:Felt-Loden/Gold (PhotoID HHH6872,7154) - RRP ÂŁ160.00

20


Visor The sinamay visor is moulded on a classic Cloche shape, giving the same sweet profile. Fits into a bag or suitcase easily. Stylish, useful and neat for sunny holidays.

Code: DIAW10AW2101Visor:Sinamay-Dark Natural/Midnight (PhotoID HHH3548) - RRP ÂŁ90
