The Borsalino Fall-Winter 2017/18 collection is a hymn to the freedom to express, blend styles, communicate through colors and details. It is a garden with the Voltaire where his own history is told, free of constraints.

Among the novelties for men, we find the two-tone ‘Diamante’ and the classic ‘Borsalino’ in Beaver felt with its flat edge and silk band rubbed. The crocodile, leather, wool, silk, velvet camouflage effect and the traditional coarse grain in a twisted, wrinkled, discolored or vintage version are available in ribbon, the cult detail of the season.

The women’s collection does not give up the romantic details, starting from the flowers on the wide edges in velvet decorated with an innovative laser technique. The ‘Toledo’  is available in 8 shades of felt with a gallon in the same tone or contrasting, the “50Grammi” with shape-adaptable cap and the ‘Borsalino‘ in Beaver felt with flat edge and ribbon in coarse grain. In women too, the ribbon is put forward: in crocodile and coarse doubled, twisted, decorated with floral motifs and two-tone decorative effect.

For the Borsalino capsule collection by Nick Fouquet, the Californian designer was inspired by the iconic 1970 film, Borsalino, where the actors Alain Delon and Jean-Paul Belmondo interpret two gangsters of the Thirties.

Sicilian, Genovese, Marsiglia, Nicki and Dash are the five male models, each available in three color choices, personalized with burns, tears and contrast embroideries and embellished with feathers, playing cards and leather straps that overlap or replace Traditional ribbon in coarse grain. Distinguishing sign: the iconic white match “Whitehead” inserted in the gallon.

Frechette, Papillon, Lola, The Pearl and St. Clair are the five female models in three different color combinations. The hats with wide and medium edges are updated by large knots in coarse grain and leather, also available in two-tone variants and with small mats. Appearing stitching, contrasting edging and feathers complete the collection signed by the iconic match in the “Redhead” version.
