Vivien Sheriff Brooch

Classic English heritage, a new limited edition brooch for Wear A Hat Day 2014

Vivien Sheriff is a leading light of English heritage millinery. Our third Wear A Hat Day brooch has been inspired by 'Dressage', a classic Vivien Sheriff hat, decorated with pheasant plumage contouring the sweeping brim.

"Being chosen to provide the inspiration for the brooch is both meaningful and poignant to me as a close freind of mine died from a brain tumour in the prime of his life. I hope you wear it with pride in being able to support the vital cause that Brain Tumour Research is campaigning for."


These brooches are a unique limited edition design, with only 500 available. Each brooch comes with it's own Certficate of Authenticity. It is available now for a minimum suggested donation of £10.

For the Pagoda hat, Philip took inspiration from a trip in Japan where he was inspired by the majestic pagodas and the beautiful magnolia plants, where the colour of the hat comes from.

“This hat is like a protection for the mind and the body and is why I thought of Brain Tumour Research” he said.
