Mad hatters: Eye-catching millinery reminiscent of designs worn at Ascot make an entrance at Couture Fashion WeekEnormous flower headpieces, reminiscent of the wacky designs worn by race-goers at Royal Ascot, are flooding the Paris catwalk this haute couture week.
But with a stricter dress code announced for Ascot this year, it will be interesting to see if the millinery present at the Queen’s favourite annual meeting, set to take place this June, will be as fanciful as previous years.
They were spotted at the Alexis Mabille presentation held at the Shangri-La hotel as part of Couture Fashion Week.
But Mabille wasn't the only designer to cause a stir. Maurizio Galante also showcased some exotic headgear, inspired by spring foliage.
The Italian designer adopted various shades of leafy green, earthy browns and poppy pinks for his his spring / summer range.
He used a combination of organza, metallic layers, wool, and silk to create the dramatic accessories.
