We thought this Visor was such a gorgeous summer present for someone special who loves the outdoors and looking fabulous.
A nomadic brand inspired by travel, art and design, an eclectic aesthetic combines to create a new approach to fashion.
With Lucent Visor's extra curves and a deep brim, the shaping turns this sports hat in to a piece of sculpted millinery. Perfect for outdoor cocktails or a morning run.
Perfect for scrap busting. The structure of the Lucent Visor is built with interfacing and millinery wire. Suggested fabric are easy to sew cottons and linens. You can experiment with a textured brim and keep the binding to an easy to sew poplin.
Intermediate sewing skills.
