Colourful Contemporary Cloche


Dive into the delightful paradox of the “Colourful Contemporary Cloche”, a hat that marries the historic essence of the cloche hat with the vibrant spirit of modernity—reflecting the unique juxtaposition akin to a historian delving into contemporary narratives. Inspired by the distinguished historian Mary Beard, this handmade hat stands as a testament to blending the old with the new, the classic with the cutting-edge.

This unique piece marries the snug comfort of a 1920s cloche hat with a distinctive indent found atop a ladies’ trilby, creating a silhouette that is both timeless and distinctly modern.

Crafted from luxurious navy blue felt, this winter hat pays homage to the past with its vintage-inspired 1920s cloche form, featuring an asymmetric brim that artfully turns up at the back while elegantly sloping down over the right eye. Reflecting Mary Beard’s fondness for color and her spirited approach to life and academia, the hat is adorned with three separate, colorful bands. These interchangeable bands offer the wearer the creative freedom to customize their look, whether opting for a single splash of color, a duo of hues, or a trio for the full effect.

Hand blocked with meticulous care in our central London studio, hybrid Cloche -Trilby hat offers a nod to the past while firmly planting its roots in present-day style. The navy base colour, reminiscent of the depth and vastness of history, is just the beginning. With a spectrum of colour options available, this piece invites personal expression in every shade imaginable.

Available in two exquisite felt options—Wool Felt for those who appreciate the classic touch, and Rabbit Felt for an added layer of softness and warmth, akin to choosing between a wool jumper and a luxurious cashmere or angora one. Each material speaks of quality and comfort, ensuring that this hat is not only a statement of style but also a bastion of warmth against the chill.
