A WAY TO SHARE CREATIVE UNIVERSES
LES BAINS, 2018 / "The Képi” - From the wool to the hat. A "chic-rock piece” issued from french & down under savoir-faire.
“The Képi” is inspired by a military couvre-chef & made in France by one of the last hat manufacturer labeled ‘Living Heritage Companies (EPV)’. The company takes care of all the manufacturing steps from the Australian Merino wool bundle recognised for its exceptional qualities, to the molding of the hat through the cone. Naomi Goodsir first conceived by hand, a felt shape which was used to make a custom made hat block. “The Képi” is available in 2 colours - loden green & midnight blue.
