Whirl of Passion
A tribute to the father of the Italian language, Dante Alighieri, for the 700th anniversary of his passing.
Feeling deeply connected to her Italian roots, Eleanor wanted to pay tribute to him with a headpiece inspired by Canto V of the first section of the work Inferno (Hell), from the narrative poem, The Divine Comedy: the poem tells the story of the poet’s travel through the three “worlds” of human condition: Hell, Purgatory and Heaven.
In Canto V reside the souls overcome by lust. Such souls are caught up together in an eternal dark storm, bumping up and down against each other like birds in a tornado. The violent punishment mirrors the violence of the sinful passion to which they fell prey during their lifetime.
London Hat Week 2020
“Bon Ton Brisshat” (on the left), was showcased at the London Hat Exhibition To the Future and Back. The exhibition was part of the London Hat Week 2020 and it was held at the Black Swan Studios.
This hat is inspired by the design for a stage dress, “Le Prologue or La Comédie au Château”, illustrated by Pierre Brissaud in La Gazette du Bon Ton, 1920.
