Smitten with Aphrodite by Duke of Nikko | This stranded hat was inspired by Aphrodite, Greek goddess of love and beauty. The festive design is full of symbols often linked with love, beauty and nature; boxed windows, columns, meanders and the Greek key on the bottom section symbolizing the beauty of landscape and architecture. Then the design continues to scallops harboring a heart symbol, fireworks coming from a house, leaping to the sun. The variegated and gradient colors bring movement to the design, and the corrugated ribbing on the brim adds a nice texture as well."
