Merve Bayindir custom designed hat for Royal Ascot Millinery Collective 2019. Exclusive for Fenwick Bond Street.
Merve Bayindir SS19
Name Of the Hat:
The large brim hat is made of custom colored dust pink three layers of Pinok Pok. The custom made wings, which also somewhat look like hydrangeas, are made from 3 meters of silk organza. There are three colors used for the wings are; pink, light purple, blue and yellow. The wings are laser cut and custom colored one by one. In between the wings there is a small amount of long see through sequences to help create the magical illusion of shine as well as changing color with the reflection of light.
For the piece while I wanted to stay connected to the softness and the sense of my SS19 collection “Whispers of Sensations”, I also wanted something that had more details and movement.
Even though it might be something from our childhood I believe in every women’s heart there is a magical land where we hide our most innocent thoughts, feelings and dreams. When I think about a place like that somehow it becomes about magical and mystical characters. Fairies are sort of the most beautiful creatures that grant your wishes I know. As a hopeless dreamer this hat is inspired from my magical land where I hide my happiness, desires and dreams.
The pink represents my dreams, the yellow represents everyone that touch my life, the blue represents my hope, the purple represent all I achieved and last the see through sequences represent all the possibilities.
