THE FIRST STOP ON THE MODO PARCOURS: ELVIS POMPILIO

The first stop on the Modo Parcours fashion trail was to renowned hat maker Elvis Pompilio, on the Rue Lebeau. Everything from the eccentric to the completely wearable was on display; cat hats made of rabbit fur, little jumper hats that could be styled to look more or less like a jumper if so desired. My favourite was the spirograph hat seen on Elvis himself, so beautiful and intricate! I really enjoyed spending time in Elvis Pompilio's store, he has an energy that rubs off on everyone around him; he wants you to play and try everything on. Speaking of which, do you like the upside-down lady hat I'm wearing?

  4. Ah, I adore that black cat hat. It's wonderful. I think I'd probably wear it ever single day of my life.

    I also saw that lampshade on the internet a while ago, it's absolutely incredible. Paiz xxx
