Mini PT is named after a full size crown made for Philip Treacy for 2011 winter collection for both men and women
as example of men style for women and vice versa a comptemporary definition of the feminisation of masculinity
as no frontier when is a design .
But for me this design was already drawn and executed in the early 90's in a block for Yojhi YAMAMOTO
an oversized man hat with an front pointed very accentuated .
Which Kates millinery bought a more controlled version to make a fur hat for men .
A block in 5 sections with a double brim . i actually made me a hat in furfelt .
This hat is a rebirth of the original design from Lorenzo .
That why made it on the head size of a new born 18 " to 20"
I want to accentuate at the maximun the angle of the pitch in the front and the pointedness
i made myself the conterpart for the tip of the crown.
the brim is a miniature of a top hat or derby ,for a hand roll finish.
I'm on really this crown since i block and free block different styles in felt ...and in straw.
