Red Vintage Hat with a Story
Your QueenMee Accessories red beret may well attract compliments when you wear it, and you may like to know a little about the story behind this iconic headwear, to get the conversation in gear.
Primarily thought to be adopted by French shepherds, berets became popular with the Parisian artists of the left bank (including Monet, Cezanne, and later Picasso) encapsulating their style. Berets were quite possible a rather practical way to keep your head warm for those struggling artists, as well as a style statement!
Berets later became a striking symbol of the underground resistance, when France was occupied by Germany in the second World War.
Up until the thirties, berets had been worn exclusively by men, but it was Coco Chanel who turned women's berets into a striking fashion statement. Coco was renowned for transforming men’s clothes and adapting them for women, sparking off a trend for movie stars like Greta Garbo and Brigitte Bardot to wear them.
Thanks to Coco Chanel, the beret has been considered iconic women’s headwear for generations.
