30 years and counting…
2022 saw the 30-year anniversary of the founding of Herald and Heart.
From its humble beginnings in a little Battersea backstreet, to the international fashion stages, films, TV, theatre, magazines, and hundreds of outlets around the world. It’s been a hell of a ride!
We have now completely settled in our Rye High Street building, catering exclusively to our own shop customers.
Herald and Heart millinery is still made by us in our own studio, allowing us to maintain our very fussy quality control.
As well as our own label hats and accessories, our shop carries items from other suppliers, carefully chosen to maintain the individuality one would expect when visiting Herald and Heart.
There’s more to us than just occasion hats!
Everyday headwear for men as well as women is for sale alongside accessories, cards and ideal gifts.
You will be surprised at our prices. We pride ourselves in bringing great products that look far more expensive than they are.
Come and see for yourself!
There is always a friendly someone on hand to help and advise you on choosing the best hat for your occasion.
We pride ourselves on making your visit as easy as possible, taking onboard your requirements, style of outfit, colours along with helping you judge what best suits you considering your role in the event and the appropriateness of the particular hat for the occasion.
We offer gentle advice and help to install the confidence that is sometimes needed to carry off the hat, especially for the less experienced hat wearer.
