Originally Hattingdon was a horse with no mane. Actually I prefer Hattingdon that way.
But there is a good reason why I reconsidered and redesigned Hattingdon with mane. There were people who couldn’t tell Hattingdon was a horse without it! For a bit of nostalgic fun, let’s revisit some of these early maneless Hattingdon designs.
They are from 2009 and early 2010 and mostly classic hats but there’s a few other styles in there too. Let’s go!
I had a request for something avant garde. Inspired by peacock feathers this is what I came up with.
Yes, this design was inspired by Bing who used to wear this style of hat when golfing.
This is very French to me. I adore the pleating and the suspended jewel pendant.
I adore buttons and remember being so happy about this design!
This is a huge favorite and one of our top selling designs. Yes, it was inspired by that “magically delicious” cereal.
Sachi is inspired by my visit to Japan. You can see the origami influence. The hat appears to be made up of a sequence of folds.
One of our few grey horses. Isn’t this a peach of a hat!
This is one of my favorites. I feel I executed the animal print very well. Plus I love black and white.
So what do you think?
If you have any of them in your collection hang on to them.
