Timeless beauty

Made it Italy, the Borsalino hat is an all time classic and an iconic symbol of prestige and quality craftmanship. When my friend and I were in Milan, I couldn’t resist in taking a peek at their cute little boutique in Galleria Vittorio Emanuele. My eyes were drawn to this deep petrol blue colour and I instantly found myself trying the felt hat on my head. I mean, what’s the harm in trying, right? Well… I couldn’t leave the stroe without it!

I fell in love with the refined blue shade and the way the hat sat perfectly around my head. I have an extremely small head size so it felt amazing to find something that doesn’t fall on my eyes. At that moment, I knew it had to come home with me. The felt hat is made from rabbit fur and takes about 7 weeks of pure craftmanship to complete. The process has been passed down from generations and that is why it feels hand-made as each hat has an immense amount of work put into them.

“The rich and famous as well as celebrities such as Johnny Depp, Leonardo Di Caprio,¬†Denzel Washington, Justin Timberlake, Kate Moss, Nicole Kidman, Naomi Campbell, and¬†John Malkovich are immortalized wearing the unique style of the living legend of the most¬†prestigious brand of hats in the world.” –
