Inspired by the infamous wind that sweeps through Provence, the mistral, Lou Mistraou's aviator-style caps bring luxuriously cozy charm to help get through the gray days of winter. The newly-launched label's signature helmet-like chapeaus in both lambskin leather ($475) and rain-proof wool felt ($275) feature adjustable chinstraps and wool-padded silk interiors for added warmth.
Each hat is meticulously cut and sewn by hand at one of France's last remaining milliners. A palette of bright hues combats seasonal doldrums for adults, while the children's collection (coming soon) is in appropriately sweet pastels.
The caps are available at Kisan, DDC Lab and Jussara Lee in New York City, as well as online.
