The wide brim hat: its history
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.
Maison Fabienne Delvigne likes to offer 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.
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.
