The Fedora hat is a mythical and classical accessory of the hat world. It's a large-brimmed or medium-brimmed hat with three holes (one on the top and two on the front, shaping "dimples"). Originally for men, it's nowadays more and more appreciated by women.
Its shape, full of charisma, gives it the allure of a leader, of a chief, of an adventurer. It also allows the model to be seized easily with one hand, in order to be lifted before ladies.
The other name of the Fedora is " Borsalino", from the one who gave it its contemporary shape -- the milliner Giuseppe Borsalino who made it its flagship model. It became famous and spread through the entire world from 1900 when it won a prize at the Universal Exhibition of Paris.
Now let's decipher the history of this headdress which is the most successful model by far.
A woman as an Egerie
At that time, the bowler hat was the most popular. During long walks towards Italian unification, demonstrations were violently punished and hats clobbered. They were then distorted, with a slot in the middle, which would inspire Giuseppe Borsalino (1835-1900), the founder of the eponymous brand.
The Fedora has also been also worn by Humphrey Bogart in the movie Casablanca. It has also been worn by Alain Demon and Jean-Paul Belmondo in the film Borsalino.
