Whenever summer approaches, you know it’s time to break out the Panama Hat. Sure, it’s light and highly breathable, but it also has a certain lazy summer vibe that other styles can’t quite match.
Maybe you have already seen Christy’s hats in magazines like Vogue or Glamour, or even the fashion shows of Kenzo or Paul Smith. Founded in England in 1773, Christy’s is the only company in the world that still makes hats in the traditional handcrafted way. No matter if it’s top hats, fedoras, homburgs, bowlers or trilbys, Christy’s has mastered adding creative details to classic designs. These panama hats, for example, are hand woven using toquilla straw in the method that has seen it included in UNESCO’s Intangible Cultural Heritage List, but the sharp and bold colour combinations give it a modern twist.
