  • Outstanding collector’s hat designed by Gabriela Ligenza
  • Made by the legendary milliner Marzi Brothers in Florence.
  • High crown Breton in purple knit and horsehair.
  • Wide-brim.

Hair taken from the manes and tails of horses was widely used in millinery in the 19th Century to that 1910s. It was used much less in later decades as synthetic horsehair became available. Most 20th century hats, like this one, are made of synthetic horsehair, usually crinoline.

British milliner Gabriela Ligenza has been designing bespoke hats for over 25 years and divides her time between London and Florence. Her hat quality is comparable to Phillip Treacy and Steven Jones. This hat was made by the Marzi Brothers, another legendary milliner who has been in business since 1924.
