I am enjoying James Coviello's designs of late (pretty adorable website). Coviello, according to his site's bio, attended Parson's School of Design in NYC, leaving in 1987 to design jewelry for Erickson Beamon. His talents then led him to hat making. Establishing a collection that was carried by the likes of Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus. His hats were soon gracing the runway in big name shows like Calvin Klein.
In 1991 Anna Sui requested a hat. A hat, turned into hats, and hats turned into knitwear, and knitwear turned into the James Coviello for Anna Sui label. The rest has been history for James. He has been showing in Bryant Park since 2000 and his designs can be found all over the world. (Check his site for a more fleshed out Bio).
I found a few of his items on Ebay. Certain to become vintage classics in a few decades. Buy them, wear them, or just put them in your closets for your daughters.
