Le Chapeau de L'Automne

Fall dressing is typically a story involving layers but one trend emerged above the others this year. Hats are being sported both casually and in a slightly dressier way for the shorter crisp days to come. The girls at Viens Avec Moi took notice and turned to the U.S. in order to find some crafted pieces from none other than Janessa Leone.
After lusting over her social media platforms, we where craving to know more about how this designer managed to get so effortlessly cool. Her personal blog lets your imagination dive deep into a tale of warm days, matted tresses & impeccable ensembles.

Based out of the city of angels, as a young girl she found herself drawn to menswear inspired pieces as a sign of reflecting power. Fond memories of her days as a young girl, turning to her grandfather’s extensive wardrobe still breath life into her current collection of handmade goods.  Knowing that at the end of the day, a well crafted piece will always hold more value than one can explain is the key to her production methods. Different widths of brims, leather contours and metallic hardware all are wrapped into one for fall 2014. Both dark gemstone hues & sandy neutrals are used as a base design factor for these hats.
