The capeline hat: its history
The wide brim hat was originally a kind of bonnet trimmed with feathers, which the Ladies wore on horseback.
In the 19ᵉ century, the wide brim hat then became a broad-brimmed hat for women.
Catherine Deneuve and Françoise Dorléac’s wide brim hat’s in Les Demoiselles de Rochefort thus gave capelin hats their aura and glamour.
Grace Kelly also wore a lot of straw wide brim hat in pastel shades. They were embellished with a muslin scarf tied around her skullcap.
The “Hepbrun” wide brim hat is one of the classics. It has the bottom of the flat cap and the wide brim of the cape. But instead of being flexible, it is stiffened with brass primers and wire.

The wide brim hat is nowadays considered a chic fashion item. It can be worn in summer as well as in winter, and for various occasions: weddings, parties…
