'Lana', is a simple headpiece, easy to wear, and a classic design.
Inspiration for this headpiece came from my love of the great Hollywood films (and film stars) of the 1950s - especially Lana Turner for this design.
This deceptively simple bandeau headpiece, in sinamay, reed and silk, is blocked by hand to give a gentle curve from back to front.
It can be worn either to the left or the right of the head (although some of the 'head attachment' options remove the option - contact me if you need advice). The restrained trimming is of natural and black freshwater reeds.
This headpiece is made in natural coloured sinamay, wired at the edge, and with a band of petersham ribbon on the underside, both for stability. It is lined in china silk.
The headpiece is shown with a simple elastic to hold it in place, but can also be made with a headband, elastic loops for hair pins or grips, hair clips, or a comb.
The piece measures approximately 27cm (10.5 inches) from left to right, and 13cm (5 inches) from back to front at the widest point.
We can also produce a 'vegetarian' version of this headpiece, replacing the silks with vegetable fibres such as linen or fine cotton, by request.
Sinamay, reed, 100% china silk, 100% silk dupion, millinery wire, petersham ribbon.
This piece is made to order. In general, it will take around six weeks to produce a piece, however, if you need it sooner than that, do contact us to see if we are able to help.
All pieces are supplied in a hat box.
The headpiece can be made with a headband, an elastic fitting, a comb, or a clip. It can also be made to sit to the left or the right. If you wish to purchase, we will contact you after receipt of your order to discuss your preferences.
Please also bear in mind that this head piece is hand made, so small variations are normal, and should be expected.
