As part of Milan Fashion Week Mens Borsalino presented its Fall/Winter 2021/22 collection.
Titles The Borsalino Gentlemen’s Club hosted by Karl Edwin Guerre this was a collection inspired by the Arts and Crafts design movement with its well-defined symbols and stylistic features, Creative Curator Giacomo Santucci explores the multiple functions hats have today with a key thought in mind: “True luxury is not only feeling good about oneself, but it also about making others feel good.”
Santucci contemplates a personal inner retrospective and the need to reconnect with nature while giving added value to authenticity and savoir-faire through a homage to past recollections and memories.

The collection examines how hats are no longer just for covering one’s head but are a style statement and an opportunity for the wearer to express their personality.
The men’s collection features a harmony of authentic, stand-out pieces including classic Borsalino shapes with small, medium and large brims and the essential rollable Traveler styles. Curated details, from the optical patchwork, foliage motifs, leather décor, to the visible stitching, all draw on a harmonious contrast against the precious felt mélange and added a new wool edition. The cult Plate model in the softest Alessandria felt features a leather back patch, handcrafted double pleating and a proposed colour palette of Black, Blueberry, Date and Porto.
For ladies, there is a play on decorative elements that enhance the timeless shapes of the Audrey, Claudette, Sophie and Violet styles as well as the two shapes: Lucy and Eveline. Detailing is seen in the chenille trim, leather bands, optical ribbon patchwork and striped mohair décor. The new Eleonora style in pastel shades of Powder and Astral as well as chic elegant Nero, sports a delicate foliage motif found on the hat ribbon and lining.
A selection of unisex styles reflect and enhance the Maison’s seasonal themes. Baseball caps, sailor models, berets and the bucket hat are presented in a range of new materials including the premiere of a calfskin-effect fabric, black Mystery patent leather and rainproof nylon. In precious eco-cashmere, the knitted tricot beanie is crafted in ribbed stockinette stitch.
