Mut zum hut

From the everyday object around 1750 to designer creations of today

The hat is currently experiencing a minor renaissance. More and more well-known fashion designers are expanding their collections with hat creations and artists from all over the world are giving new impulses to the hat. 


Central Museum Utrecht

7 April to 16 March 2018 

Every half year the Centraal Museum asks a group of residents from the city of Utrecht to give a reflection on the collection.

Irene van Vugt talks about the choice in relation to the craft that she practices.

The Hatmagazine has asked Irene to design a hat in a special kind of leather with a beautiful  finish, seen at this year's Première Vision. She combined the leather with sinamay and quilted it in a kind of honeycomb pattern.
