Chapeau cloche : le chapeau de légende des années 1920

As its name suggests, this hat shape is bell-shaped, recognizable by its round cap and lowered brim. It symbolizes the elegance of the Roaring Twenties (1920-1930), when the watchword of the post-war period was "modernity". Now back in the spotlight, the cloche hat will appeal to all coquettish women looking for elegant protection from the elements.
