DBM, the famous hatmaking studio in Paris, and Billabong have collaborated on a small limited edition line of luxury headwear. Three distinctive fancy shapes resulted from the partnership: a custom-fitted cap, a vintage driver cap and a retro style felt hat. The inspiration, meanwhile, comes from custom, rockabilly culture. The use of finest quality fabrics such as English yarn dye plaid, Italian genuine cow leather and French satin lining, combined with the know-how of DBM, make each product one of a kind. Each item is numbered, entirely handmade in DBM’s studio in Paris, and comes in an authentic hatbox. Fernand Sebbah, founder of DBM, had been the director of headwear at Lanvin in Paris for six years and continues to work for some of Paris’ most prestigious luxury brands including Louis Vuitton, Kenzo and Nina Ricci. The custom cap and driver Cap, each at €230 and the felt hat, at €250, will be available as of October exclusively to Billabong stores in Spain, France and England.
