Next to the Brattle Florist: flowers and fedoras. Floral prints have been around and popular for a while, but so too have fedoras. And this summer, I’ve been seeing them around the Square with more frequency than ever before.
“The word fedora comes from the title of an 1882 play by Victorien Sardou, Fédora…The play was first performed in the United States in 1889. The heroine of the play wore a hat similar to what is now considered a fedora. The fedora had been a female fashion. When the fedora became a male fashion item in the late 19th century, it was popular for its stylishness and its ability to protect the wearer’s head from the wind and weather.” – Wikipedia
