Meet the Designer: Brookes Boswell

A member of the Bespoke Brooklyn movement, this young, up-and-coming milliner is putting hats on the map again.

Violetto, Prescott, Savoy, Alderman, Galleon… the names of Brookes Boswell’s hats read like characters in a Charlotte Brontë novel. Up until a few years ago, the idea of 20-somethings investing in a fedora was similar: a romantic idea, but hard to pull off IRL. Since opening her eponymous millinery studio in 2009, Brookes has been making waves with her made-to-measure and off-the-rack hats. We would brave hat hair any day to wear one of her handmade chapeaus, so we had to get a look behind the scenes. We caught up with Brookes to talk hat making, the best kind of felt and Jane Birkin.
