This is a Cloche Wool Felt Hat in a Leopard print design. It is made from 100% pure wool felt and the hat is a pale latte base colour printed wth black leopard print spots. What simple yet elegant hat.
This hat is a 1920s old fashioned cloche style with a deep crown so it fits down snuggly over your head. The head fitting size is a @59 cm so med-medium +.
The trim on the hat is black with an elegant black pure silk flower on the right side. This hat has the traditional short brim cut at the back as was the correct design for a cloche, so that the back brim is short and a scarf or coat goes over the back brim.
The front of the brim is a short upsweep roll, going from narrow to wider in a delicate flattering curve.
So retro yet very comfortable and easy to wear. The deep crown allows it to go nearly down to the base of the ears. So on those cold autumn and winter days this is the perfect hat to keep your head warm. Why wear a beanie when you can make such a fashion statement with a Cloche and be warm at the same time.
