Hats Off to Laird Hatters!

By Butterboom Writers  /  October 14, 2017

London-based Laird Hatters is a British brand that hand-makes stylish, unisex hats and caps. Established in 2009 by the husband-and-wife team Alex and Zofia Torun-Shaw, Laird Hatters is known for its traditional styles but with an approachable, modern twist. Alex, who studied at the London College of Fashion and is the brand’s principal milliner, is of the philosophy that a great hat is what maketh a person hence their venture into this fun and cool brand!

Laird Hatters has three stores in Central London and one in Cambridge. Aside from their usual fare at the store, Laird Hatters also regularly collaborates with British designers and are often featured in London Fashion Week. The creative team also makes bespoke headwear for clients as well as for TV shows and films.

Being proudly Britain, Laird Hatters uses the best British cloth like wool, furfelt, select tweed, linen and silk. You won’t find boring numbers here – most Laird Hatters pieces are in vibrant colours, slick and make bold statements – just how a hat should! So much so a Laird Hatters hat itself can be a fashion statement on its own.

For wardrobe practicality living in a stylish city like Hong Kong, we love the fedora hat featured– they are classic in every sense yet look super chic and stylish. No wonder celebs like Yoko Ono and Keira Knightley are said to be fans!
