where Nature and Art cross into a collection of pure beauty and charm
The Borsalino collection for Spring-Summer 2023 reflects on the true beauty of Mother Nature for a meditative journey of transformation and harmonious communion. A range of hats, caps, soft accessories, and small leather goods creatively story-tell a deep appreciation for the highest level of artisanship while highlighting the Maison’s vision of modern luxury, fueled, and celebrated by continuous research, artistic inspiration, and artisan Made in Italy tradition. A transversal collection is also a demonstrated, open international dialogue intended to create and promote a syncretic, emotionally profound, and aesthetically inclusive future. In a wounded world, Creative Curator Giacomo Santucci draws on Nature’s primordial elements of Water and Air for collection inspiration that nourishes the stunning landscapes and motifs from artist Claude Monet and the Impressionist Movement.
Arts and Crafts Select hats evoke a sense of immediacy and vitality from natural landscapes, honoring wondrous light and the colors of creation. The breathtaking landscapes of Normandy loved by Claude Monet inspire the translated chromatic palette, degrade details and handcrafted fringing. The Panama Quito Federico and Sophie, models star in multicolor straw and raw textures enhanced by a savoir-faire tartan effect.
Contemporary In a wide range of colors, the original chevron hatbands elegantly add a sense of lightness to the Ecuadorian straw, raffia and papier hats, true emblems of Borsalino excellence and craftsmanship. In a tribute to the Impressionists, a floral motif of cornflowers, water lilies and peonies decor the special applications, jacquard ribbons, and hand-embroidered details. Not to be missed is the standout braided straw visor with an all over Borsalino vintage logo-crest.
Street This street universe colorfully converses through a selection of frayed denim in multi-shades, all-over logos, and tartan effect bouclé fabrics. Baseball caps, buckets and wide brim hats in cotton and linen are decorated with brand new terry cloth patches and leather details. A novel range of mesh fabrics premiered for the hottest summer days.
Soft Accessories The collection of light shawls, maxi-stoles, scarves, sarongs, kaftans, bandanas, twillys and hair accessories are featured in natural textiles of silk, cotton, and linen. Highlighting the season’s stylistic codes, fresh chevron motifs overlap floral jacquard patterns and the iconic Borsalino logo crest bursts into delicate unexpected colors and graphics.
Small Leather Goods Celebrating the art of stylish travel, the previewed collection of handcrafted bags, briefcases, backpacks, wallets, and small leather accessories premiere precious materials and a Borsalino logo archive crest in a rendered homage of unmistakable Italian elegance. The season’s must-have Demetra bag, crafted in straw with a leather handle and shoulder strap, comes in three different sizes to accommodate individual style and personal taste.
