We have run out of stock for this item.

Nick Fouquet has created The Sun, a unique tear-drop fedora with octagonal brim that was inspired by an 18th-century European painting in LACMA’s collection. Coyote teeth on Japanese indigo paper twine create the hatband and The Sun vintage tarot card and a match (a Fouquet detail) are sewn onto the hat itself. Inside is a 2 in. roan leather sweatband and silk liner with a mini velvet bow.

Nick Fouquet started his hat-making business in 2011 with a storefront in Venice, California. All his hats are handmade and one of a kind, with a focus on natural aesthetics. This video shows how these hats are made.

The LACMA work that inspired this hat is attributed to the Bohemian School and depicts a fortune teller. The painting alludes to the five senses as seen by the berries, flowers, and musical instruments held by a child and by the hand that is being read by the fortune teller.
