Victor Osborne

I love hats… and almost more… I love seeing people’s ateliers… during my brief visit in New York, I discovered the most beautiful store in the Lower East Side… it was a hat store… Victor Osborne is the designer.. and he was 1. nice enough to let me take pictures of his vintage and custom hat molds… and 2. very good looking and 3. extremely talented! I checked out his website at and his talents are not a secret.
