Solstice in black wool and faux leather

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 black. 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!
