Photos by The Eternal Headonist
Since winter is well and truly upon us, there’s no better time than now to sport some head-warming gear. Beanies are not just for the snow and headpieces shouldn’t be reserved for the Spring Racing Carnival. Recently I had the pleasure of meeting Annabel, the brains behind The Eternal Headonist. Being ‘passionate’ about hats is an understatement for the biologist-turned-accountant-turned-milliner. She lives and breathes hats.
I had so much fun quizzing Annabel about the stunning vintage pieces from her online store. Her photos are incredible! Most of The Eternal Headonist headpieces are hand-picked by Annabel on her buying trips to New York. I was stoked to be invited to her studio to see them in person.
These are original milliner designs dating back from the 40s through to the 80s with limited edition Philip Treacy, Stephen Jones and vintage Schiaparelli. Raffia bumpers, faux-leopard toques, velvety berets and pearl encrusted pillboxes oh my! I chose this 70s velour wide brim hat as its shape and shade are perfect for the Melbourne winter. Plus, I can always come back for the more elaborate headpieces come Spring Racing season!

[spoiler title=”中文版”] 冬季终于来临了，现在寒冷的天气正是带帽子的好季节。帽子不光是为下雪天和赛马节预备的。最近，我遇见了Annabel，她开了网上的帽子店”The Eternal Headonist”。这位从生物学家变成会计出又变成女帽/头饰设计师是个多彩多艺的女郎。她的帽子专集真另人惊讶，有好多复古的头饰。她网店的照片好棒啊都是她自己拍的！大多数的头饰都是Annabel在纽约旅行买的。这些正本的女帽设计从40到80年代。有豹皮的，天鹅绒毛的，珍珠镶嵌着的，带有樱桃的，她们太美了！我选择了这顶70年代的天鹅绒宽边帽。它的形状和颜色正适合墨尔本的冬天。我好期望赛马节快到来啊！因为它意识到春天更暖和的天气的来临，而且给我们上The Eternal Headonist购买帽子的好借口！
