Inspired by 1940s and 50s pinup style, Robin is a dramatic teardrop-shaped tilt hat with a folded brim at the back which sweeps to a glamorous point in front. Designed to be worn to one side, like many hats of the period Robin is best worn with a hatpin. Trim with flowers or feathers for a hat that will really turn heads.
