THE CALLANAN HAT BRAND DEBUTS ITS FALL COLLECTION WITH NEW COLOR AND TRIM DETAILING THAT ARE MUST HAVES FOR SAVVY SHOPPERS
(Stockton, CA/New York, NY): When Fall-Winter arrives, John Callanan’s hat line is ready for action. Established in 1987, by John Callanan, this brand has been a fashionista favorite, with 2017 planned as the best season yet. John Callanan began his hat design journey as a European milliner, but several years later joined Dorfman Pacific, where he has been designing his collection for the last 21 years. He spent many years in the USA, but now resides and designs in London where he first got his design inspiration… and once again thrives on the insights he finds in London, Europe and globally as he travels.
The Callanan designs carry the Dorfman Pacific standard of unequaled hat styling and high quality. John knows how to perfectly proportion silhouettes, and to incorporate design detailing that is always exact and skillfully crafted with the ideal blend of materials. Each hat is chic and elegant, appealing to a wide range of customers who seek a blend of smart fashion and great taste.
John Callanan’s hat creations have a devoted and ever growing following; therefore the arrival of his newest collection is always highly anticipated. His themes feature romantic and antiqued details as well as urban edginess. John masters both end of the spectrum by reinventing looks and trims from the past such as the various flowers, lace, netting, pleating, frayed edges, velvet (which he emphasizes as ULTRA KEY), sequins and metallic trims he features. He addresses the urban female, who likes to play around with these feminine looks but also craves a more citified look and urban novelty such as the stenciled prints and doomed and rounded crowns. Ombre boiled wool is expected to be a top contender, particularly because it is blocked to hold its shape yet still is packable. A floppy boiled wool look has just the right amount of body to not look too casual. Additionally he expands his color palette to include army, red and charcoal in many styles because he feels that these colors will be sought after, particularly charcoal which he refers to as the new black.
A recap of John’s favorites includes: LV342 (Romantic Cloche), LV384 (Beaded Lace), LV385 (Juliet Cap), LV389 (Stenciled Wool Felt), LV392 (Gypsy Fedora), LV395 (Skimmer), LV396 (Boiled Wool Fedora), and LV394 Cloche with Tassel, offered in Army Green).
Chapel Hats, Lord & Taylor, Bloomingdales, Hats In The Belfry, The Village Hat Shop, Anthropologie and Terrain are just a few examples of retailers that love the brand and will offer wide assortments.
