Solstice was inspired by the yin and yang pull between the Northern and Southern Hemispheres, the balancing of our longest and shortest days and nights. I wanted to create a tangible outward manifestation that also incorporated the human desire and struggle for balance within ourselves. To that end, Solstice was purposefully designed to be equal parts masculine and feminine; hard and soft; matte and shiny; quilted and smooth; warm and lightweight. It is made to be both armour and fanfare, worn for adventures both day and night.
This hat is constructed using mill-end designer surplus fabrics: a stiff black Italian wool for the center section, accented with a textured soft leather-look Italian vinyl in forest green. Solstice is both very lightweight and warm (road-tested in Chicago winter winds!), and super comfortable to wear. I've tried something new by making it a fitted silhouette - no drawstrings or adjustability here, just beautiful streamlined minimalism.
Solstice is unlined with finished seaming, foldable and rollable to stuff into a pocket or purse. But why would you do that? It's too much fun to wear!
