The history of the wide brim hat
In the 19ᵉ century, the wide brim hat became a broad-brimmed hat for women.
Catherine Deneuve and Françoise Dorléac’s wore wide brim hats in “Les Demoiselles de Rochefort” and gave the capelin hats their aura and glamour.
Grace Kelly also wore a lot of straw wide brim hats in pastel shades. They were embellished with a muslin scarf tied around her skullcap.
Moreover, the Belgian actress Audrey Hepbrun, who lived her youth in Brussels, inspired the designer Fabienne Delvigne. She admired her sober elegance…
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, etc.

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. 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 reminiscence of the beautiful collaboration between our two Maisons.
