From Our Curator

Our View

As hats go, this one by Colette della Vedova has elegant underpinnings! We delight in bringing Colette to your attention.

She is a consummate artisan-cum-artist who hails from the most picturesque village in the northern Italian region Piedmont; and we fell in love with her bountiful imagination.

Working mostly by herself, she takes great care to make hats and umbrellas that speak to the pursuit of excellence. This princely hat proud to be bearing the Made-in-Italy label will put a smile on your face and a skip in your step!

About the Designer

Colette Della Vedova (CDV)

Nanni and Colette begin their adventure at the end of the 1970s in Cressa, a small village in the northern region of Piedmont situated near Lago Maggiore, the home of the handmade umbrella. Influenced and encouraged by a very dear friend who used to commission umbrellas in Italy on behalf of French luxury brands, Colette and her beloved spouse Nanni take on, with the greatest of ease, a very old craft championed by artisans before them.

To this day, CDV not only makes umbrellas strictly by hand, but they respect time honoured methods too. Moreover, the company is a staunch user of only the best materials like bamboo, valuable woods, and various kinds of skins and leather.

Handles made out of these natural materials are then matched in most unusual ways with panels of pure cotton, silk, lace, velvet, and also to printed polyester and jacquard fabrics, these too made exclusively in Italy.
