Natalie Chan: Postcards From Paris

Sunday, October 26, 2014

There are few things more elegant than beautiful millinery, it has the power to elevate an outfit from everyday to extraordinary.  But like many other artisans, milliners are becoming a rare breed, which is why it's always a delight to see the work of local labels like Natalie Chan, who are continuing on the old traditions and are creating headwear that maintains impeccable craftsmanship while embracing modern ideas as well.

I was fortunate enough to attend Natalie Chan's launch at La Cigale in Parnell for her 'Postcards from Paris' range, which showcased her gorgeous new pieces.  Her collection has been released just in time for the summer racing and weddings seasons and is a sublime mix of florals, luxurious fabrics and cane lattice with pretty details in suitably summery hues.  You can see that each and every piece has been cleverly constructed to flatter the wearer and showcase the stunning features of the headwear.

Chan drew inspiration from vintage Parisian ladies and the chic feel of that French influence certainly comes through in the collection.  I couldn't help but fall in love with the divine Atantique piece (above) amongst several others.  Although headwear isn't as common on the street anymore, it's wonderful to see that it is still popular as occasion wear and that the likes of Natalie Chan are doing a fabulous job of encouraging the younger generations to add it to their outfits.

Postcards from Paris is available in the Natalie Chan boutique and online here.
