The Homburg

The Homburg, also called a Diplomat hat, is defined by a soft felt with a split crown and raised and braided edges. It was introduced to France by the King of England Edward VII (1901-1910). The latter would have been inspired by the hunting hat of William I, to make an urban version. Eisenhower gave it its status as a formal hat, when he wore it at his two investiture ceremonies, in place of the top hat. This hat decorated with a very chic grosgrain ribbon can be made of different materials.

The Trilby

Once considered the favorite hat of the wealthy man, the Trilby is similar to the Fedora, but differs from it by a shorter brim and a smaller crown. It was specially designed for the 1894 theatrical adaptation of the novel “Trilby” by Georges du Maurier, in which the eponymous heroine wears this rabbit hair hat. Its crown made it very popular in the 60s. More recently, the Trilby is suitable for urban and casual styles.

The Capeline

The Capeline is a feminine hat recognizable by its very wide brim and its rounded shape gives it lightness in summer and winter. An emblematic hat of the 1970s, the Capeline has become popular since the release of the film “Les demoiselles de Rochefort” in which Françoise Dorléac and Catherine Deneuve wear very large matching hats. Both elegant and discreet, it can be worn with casual outfits as well as for a special occasion.

The Bowler is a rigid, curved felt hat that had its heyday at the turn of the 19th and 20th century.
