Hats don't just make themselves you know, especially the best ones... Now you've seen the collection in Part One of this post, here's a little on how they got to what they are.
Founded in 1773, Christy's is one of the best hat manufacturers in the world. In an impressive, unbroken 200-year-old(+) history, the historic British hatter has been entrusted to create hats of the highest calibre for heads including Sir Winston Churchill and HRH Prince Albert. Not stopping here, the hat makers have also made the iconic helmets and caps for the British Police Force for over 200 years.
Steaming, cutting, trimming and shaping, the guys at Christy's have created a variety of super stylish hats for Farrell's brilliantly made AW12 collection. Using some of the oldest machinery still going (their newest piece is 50 years old), the outcome is pretty special...
