Detail of the velvet felt fedora hat
Velvet felt fedora, a timeless classic. Available on our E-shop in several colours: Beige, burgundy, navy blue and grey. Currently beige and burgundy are out of stock. Trimmed with matching ribbon on the brim and around the top of the hat.
Velvet felt is, like cashmere for a jumper, soft to the touch. It is also flattering to the face thanks to its velvety aspect reflected on the face. This hat is, in fact, light, especially if we work it with care and lightness as Maison Fabienne Delvigne always does. Moreover, this soft material is waterproof.
The history of the fedora hat
The fedora hat has always been considered a classic in the world of hats.
The origin of the name fedora comes from the hat worn by the actress Sarah Bernhardt when she played the heroine in the play called “Fedora” of Victorien Sardou’s.
Since then, the hat was worn by many actors such as Humphrey Bogart in the film “Casablanca”, Alain Delon and Jean-Paul Belmondo in the film “Borsalino”, by Harrison Fort in the “Indiana Jones” film series and finally by Michael Jackson in “Billie”.
The fedora hat has become an essential fashion accessory. This hat is now worn by both men and women in their everyday life.

To maintain velvet and melusine felts, they should be brushed regularly with a clothes brush. For example, to remove any dust and to raise the hair. Indeed, brushing gives the hat its lustre and shine.
First, Maison Fabienne Delvigne carefully wraps the hats in tissue paper, and then places them in a black hat box designed by Fabienne Delvigne. These boxes are tailor made by Maison Fabienne Delvigne. Then, we place a certificate of authenticity next to the hat. Finally, we delicately perfume the hat with Guerlain’s “Eau de Cashmere”, a souvenir of the beautiful collaboration between our two Maisons.
