.we love: eva kim heu

Inspired by the 1920s, the timeless, elegant, simplicity of Eva Kim Heu's hats is influenced by her educational background in industrial design at the University of Applied Science, Vienna.

Passionate about re-igniting people's love of hats, with a belief that the right head accessory can perfect any outfit and accentuate the individuality of the wearer, the designer is committed to the craft of millinery.

Luxury angora and wool felt fabrics are used to create Eva Kim Heu's handmade hats and hat discs. Selected for their durability, weather resistance and luxurious touch, these materials have been used by milliners for centuries.

Modern designs produced using a time-honoured craft is the corner stone of Eva Kim Heu's approach to millinery, resulting in beautiful hats to be enjoyed and cherished for a lifetime.
