Inspired by the Boaters of the last century, it is the dreamy well-dressed summer hat. Chanel rebirthed the Boater as an essential accessory for the fashionable.
Traditionally the Boater is a very very stiff hat, prone to chipping and an uncomfortable fit. The softer Panama style makes it gentle and a pleasure to wear. The braided rope weave offers superb ventilation for hot weather and a rich hand-textured finish.
The Boater is very versatile, suiting a wide range of faces, and is worn straight, tipped to the back of the head, or off to the side for a little panache. A favourite in Japan and France, it is quirky and timelessly chic.
