Top Off Your Outfit With The Missoni Mare

* Modern black and white sun hat
* Timeless design made from woven paper
* Quality Italian tailoring from Missoni fashion house

Winter may yet be in full swing here in the Northern Hemisphere, but that doesn’t mean you can’t add some warm summer vibes to your travel wear. Add a touch of Italian Riviera style to your ensemble while keeping the sun off your eyes with Missoni’s Mare Woven Hat.

A woven paper (blended with polyester) hat in striking black and white, it recalls Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday and classic mid-century modern glamour. The accompanying silk crochet scarf is the perfect accessory for those wind blown Adriatic beaches, or just a walk through the neighborhood. The colorful scarf sets off the pattern of the hat with tasteful contrast.

Lovingly made in Italy, the Missoni Mare hat goes great with cardigans, summer dresses and even with more dressy and formal looks as well. The 85% paper hat is lightweight and non-hair ruining. In many ways the perfect complement to a pair of shades like the Movitra 215, also from Italy, the Missoni Mare is both elegant and jaunty.

Great for sunny days, boats and beaches, the Missoni Mare knit paper hat is a great way to add a dash of style and have something on your head without looking like you’re preparing for a trek across the Yukon. This hat, with its particularly 1960s elegance, would look right at home on the cover of one of the mysterious Elena Ferrante’s Neapolitan novels. In other words: just the right amount of style and mystique.
