Styling & Fitting

The Darjeeling features an oversized silk gazar bow that looks great positioned at the front or the back. The soft elasticated head fitting means the hat is free-size, and sits slightly higher on the head for a striking silhouette. This hat is appropriate for Royal Ascot Races and also works as a casual or wedding guest hat.

This style is also available in natural and navy

Please note that all couture pieces come with a complementary Lock & Co. hat box.
