An interior designer turned millinery, Satya Twena’s updated hats are handmade by the designer on vintage blocks, inspired by local landmarks such as the Guggenheim, and mixed with retro nets or delicate handmade flowers to make each piece feel truly special…I found my perfect hat for Paris when I visited her New York City studio which garnered more declarations of love from Frenchmen than a girl can even imagine!

A song bird, a bow, hidden eyes beneath a veil. A train ride to 125th street, the lights come on, the Cotton Club sings and we hear her.

Melissa & I spent an afternoon wrapped in chiffon and silk, feathers and jewels, and buttons of pearls as we treasured hunted through another time and place in a delicate world of time gone by.
