Eugenia Kim Grande Jatte Boater
Milliner and CFDA award-winner Eugenia Kim got her start by creating a red, guinea-feathered cloche in class at Parsons School of Design to disguise a bad haircut. Her talent was immediately apparent to boutiques in Soho, who clamored for more, and so, her namesake lines were launched. Kim is known for her innovative shapes, luxe fabrications and idiosyncratic trims. Studded accents and a velvet bow provide a femme take on the menswear-classic boater hat.

CaryandCartier - Review from Anthropologie
I'm not even a hat person!CUTE hat that flatters a not-made-for-hats person (me). I've always loved the idea of hats but have never found a shape/brim that suits me. Apparently boater hats are what I've been missing! This hat's crown looks shallow but in fact it sits nicely on my head (except in windy conditions, which is to be expected). It also has a great brim depth that actually shades my eyes (unlike fedoras and cloches). The only thing I could possibly find disappointing about this hat is the fabric ribbon: it looks unimpressive up close. Not exactly cheap, but definitely unimpressive. The metal hardware is fine, but the paint-splatter print is just "meh." I still plan on keeping the hat, though, which should be indication of the tepidness of my disappointment. Again, I'm more excited to find that I can actually wear hats, if only a certain style.
