 SS16 Collection

Vivien Sheriff is a multi-award winning British milliner with an enviable reputation for stunning and distinctive headwear. A favourite with royalty (including Kate Middleton) and celebrities alike, Vivien Sheriff consistently gains high-profile press coverage, with publications including Vogue, Harpers Bazaar, Elle, Marie-Claire and Tatler regularly featuring her designs.

Originally trading in vintage textiles from around the world, the exoticism of her travels was a defining influence on Vivien Sheriff. She launched her first headwear collection in 2005 from her picturesque farm-based studio in Wiltshire. An Aladdin's cave of treasures, it is filled with a rainbow of coloured silks, straw and trimmings. Famed in particular for her use of feathers and plumage, Vivien Sheriff designs often feature peacock and ostrich feathers dyed into magical iridescent colours. She also creates witty and imaginative headpieces, embellished with everything from old-fashioned British sweets to miniature shoes.

Surrounded by the beautiful English countryside, the ever evolving landscape and wildlife are constant sources of inspiration for Vivien. Ethically sourced natural materials ensure that Vivien Sheriff headwear is not only distinctive and hand-crafted but vitally sustainable and responsible. 

The Vivien Sheriff signature style combines classic English heritage with a contemporary design ethos, attracting collaborations with traditional British brands such as Farrow & Ball, for whom Vivien Sheriff produced a limited collection earlier this year.
