x Vecsei Millinery
VECSEI Millinery is a small millinery based in Budapest, Hungary. Zsófi Vecsei opened her millinery in 2016 after discovering the rare craft of hat-making by hand. Having studied art history in Vienna, she approaches her craft with a deep respect for art and its many forms. Her work is also influenced by her time in England, where hats have a special place in people's lives.
In her collaboration with ZSIGMOND, Zsófi explored the Hungarian traditions of hat-wearing from the perspective of peasants. An inspiration that is ever-present in ZSIGMOND's world, the collection reaches into the past and brings fragments of it into our present resulting in an output that feels strangely familiar, yet inherently modern.
