From Our Curator

Our View

In classic and noble fabric this lovely rain hat by Colette della Vedova who resides in a charming village in Piedmont is a keeper!

It takes more than talent to create simplicity; Colette does so everyday. Her innate style and appreciation for texture, colour and natural materials manifest in truly heartwarming creations.

Relatively unknown outside her native Italy, we believe that her capsule will soon leave their mark elsewhere too! Should you indulge in the hat, do not forsake the matching umbrella as one without the other would be a shame!

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.
