James Wedge

This? This is rare. This is seriously rare. Before his career as a photographer, even before opening his boutique 'Countdown' on the King's Road, James Wedge was a milliner of some note. His hats were modelled by Jean Shrimpton, Celia Hammond and Susannah York. As his other careers took off, however, the millinery appears to have been left behind in the 1960s, which means his hats really don't turn up very often. This incredible example is a bright turquoise toque, with a decorative pom-pom at the front, in a quintessentially early Sixties style. Not only is it a wonderful example of the period, it is also an incredibly rare example of James Wedge's millinery work and, as such, is an essential element in any fashion historian's collection.
