New Boutique: Go Go Chapeaux

January 2009

Hat making is fast becoming a lost art form, but Fashion Institute of Technology-trained milliner Erin Saboe intends to keep it alive with her new Cherry Creek North boutique, Go Go Chapeaux. A bright and cheery space with a retro flair, the store sells ready-made hats (check out the line of reversible newsboy caps by Charm) as well as Saboe's own creations. Working by hand with classic materials, such as felt from a rare New York supplier, Saboe designs and forms fedoras (Indiana Jones' hat), cloche hats (1920s bell-shaped bonnets), and updated Tyroleans (Austrian mountain caps). Her styles give a modern twist to the traditional forms. One of my favorites is the forest green vintage felt Tryolean, with a tall crown--perfect for cold, snowy nights in Denver. Go Go Chapeaux, 290 Columbine St., 303-377-3555
