Bonnet

Description
Made of brown velvet with silk ribbon trimmings. The shape is still typical and the trimming is still ornate. The inspiration from nature comes through in the colours chosen, earthy browns and greens. The pleated effect at the front frames the face and helps to shape the bonnet.
