Karen Henriksen

Innovative yet accessible hats - exquisitely handmade for men and women.


An abiding preoccupation with structure as decoration, along with a distinctly singular approach to pattern-cutting, are perhaps what give my hats their exclusivity and individuality.

Karen Henriksen established her millinery label in 2003, after graduating from the Royal College of Art.

Presenting both men’s and women’s collections each season at Premiere Classe (Paris), her hats are instantly recognisable, striking a carefully considered balance between innovation and accessibility. With every hat made in the London studio, both regular and new wearers are inspired not only by the original designs, but by that distinctly comfortable fit only found in handmade items.

Not surprisingly, it is these qualities that have led to the hats being stocked at some of the finest fashion stores and specialist boutiques around the world. They have also caught the attention of some of the fashion world's leading editors and stylists, ensuring regular coverage in the UK and international fashion press.

fashion and accessories

Women’s collections include re-imaginings of classic styles such as the flat cap, fedora, beret and cloche, always beautifully finished and thoughtfully designed.


Finish off your special occasion outfit with a couture millinery creation. Karen can work to commission to match the colour of your outfit, whether you’re the bride, mother of the bride or attending as a guest.
