Designer and milliner Gigi Burris has collaborated with G&G Mercantile + Co to create an exclusive Derby hat for Garden & Gun. From the silk handmade magnolia bloom to the pheasant plumes, here is what she has to say about her design process:
"I looked towards the Southern roots dear to my heart for this special Derby hat. Beige straw is sewn and hand blocked into a sloping brim and paired with a square crown with a subtle creased detail. Magnolias grew on the tree in my backyard, and this silk version is made entirely by hand by a multi-generational flower manufacturer in New York City. Artfully placed ostrich, coque, and biot feathers sit alongside pheasant plumes from birds hunted by my father.”
All hats are made to order. Orders must be placed by April 10th to guarantee delivery by May 5th.
