Creative design, innovation and the craft of millinery are at the heart of every one of my designs, made to be loved everyday.
While studying at the Royal College of Art, Karen’s experiments with asymmetric pattern-cutting led to her re-interpretation of a traditional English icon, the flat cap. She has since also re- visited other everyday classic styles such as the peaked cap, the fedora and the beret.
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.
