Fall is upon us and that means hat season is here! I love a great sweater and hat look but the most unique hats are those that are custom made! A few years ago I made a trip to New York City and met Brandon of BM Franklin Hat co, hat maker of the stars, and got the full custom hat experience! In this post, I am sharing my custom hat and other amazing works by Brandon.
Brandon’s creative mindset is not to re-invent the wheel; but to add expression and creativity through the pieces that he produces. B.M. Franklin fuses classic silhouettes and modern aesthetics to craft pieces reflecting the individuality and personality of the wearer.
BM Franklin’s classically trained artisans work with luxurious fur-felts and hand-woven straws sourced from around the world. Their creative philosophy is to maintain traditional crafting techniques paired with innovative design.
With B.M. Franklin, creative possibilities are limitless. Through the cultivation of their processes, they create heirloom-quality pieces without sacrificing inspiration or individuality. Follow his journey and be sure to stop by Brandon’s Atlanta Boutique.
I just love the classic hat that Brandon custom created for me. He asked a few questions about my style, and somewhere in our convo I told him of my love for pirates. I was amazed at the final product. The perfect amount of class, with a touch of rigidity.
I love the details of this piece. Check out the little rustic cut out around the rim! I pair my hat with suede booties and my favorite winter sweater!
