It is with great pleasure and enthusiasm that I introduce Julia Emily Knox, proprietress of East Village Hats and milliner extraordinaire. I usually visit her hat shop during my trips to NYC to be enchanted by her artistry and a superb millinery experience! I have been a fan or Julia’s “Urban Turbans” for several years and the beginnings of an East Village Hats collection in my hat room.
Over a year ago, I acquired a top hat named the “Deadman.” Handmade by Julia from emerald-beaver-finish-fur felt, it’s four inches tall with a two-inch brim and fits like a glove. It’s one of the stars of my winter/fall hat collection, and I think of East Village Hats whenever I wear it. It always receives compliments wherever I go, and its color is unique and inspiring.
The shop is filled with an incredible selection of felts or straws, depending on the season. The selection of headwear to choose from is vast, both for men and women. If you are a hat lover and haven’t been to East Village Hats, it’s time to stop in for a visit. I’ve found it to be a fascinating destination filled with art and charm.
I’m thrilled to introduce the polk-dot collection from Julia’s spring line to the Hip Silver community. The headwear is exquisite, and there’s a style and shape to enhance many a spring ensemble. There is nothing more captivating than a well-made chapeau!Read More
