See if there's one in your area
Lisa Battaglia, ’88, designs hats that reinterpret vintage aesthetics to live in the modern world. Drawing on her unusual free-form technique and her uncanny fashion instinct, she creates dramatic hats that recall a bygone era and yet are utterly of the moment. Each hat is a geometric work of art that magically provides its wearer with more than one look through a simple turn of the brim.
"I often refer to my aesthetic as modern vintage. To me, there is such beauty in merging the craftsmanship of old world millinery with modern colors, shapes and fabrics."
Lisa uses the traditional millinery technique of free-form draping to create her hats. Using a wooden hat form, she drapes, twists and sculpts the material, and then hand stitches the folds to create her signature looks. Each piece is an intricate, beautiful work of art in and of itself. Most of Lisa’s hats can be worn several different ways to fit the occasion or match your mood.
