Borsalino – what can you say about an accessory that has remained relevant to the fashion world for over 150 years? The legendary Italian hat company born in 1857 has always been able to maintain a timeless attraction that continues to draw fans like Johnny Depp. Their latest capsule collection, introduced at Pitti Uomo, is called Fashion Balloons and gives a fun twist to Borsalino’s Italian elegance by handing the hat over to Milanese Neo-Pop artist Willow.
Under Willow’s brush the classic fedora transforms into a surreal head topper, the kind that would be at home on the Mad Hatter. Printed with brightly colored little creatures, the collection features straw and fabric models that come in three different shapes. Since the collection was created for Spring/Summer 2012, you can’t get one yet, but keep your eyes open to spot them on yoox.com.
