Put your hat on: interview with Corina Leca at DeCorina Hats

December 9th, 2020 / by / in: Dazzling stories / No responses

I don’t really know if I ever liked myself with a hat 🙂 Probably not. But this didn’t stop me trying some cool & new hats models from DeCorina Hats. And, in between, to chat a little with the designer of the most wonderful hats around. 

The pieces signed DeCorina Hats are available on…
… the showroom in Bucharest, Str. Capitan Mircea Vasilescu 19, www. decorinahats.com (with an app on website where you can try on hats) Molecule F Store (www.molecule-f.com) and few online shops.

Your first fashion crush story was related to…
Coco Chanel for her courage to break taboos. 

Hats because…
… they are fabulous; and give you the freedom to be whoever you want to be.

The moodboard for your 2020 collection includes…
… furs (vegetal), military effects, extra volumes and a return to slow living through fabrics, style and shapes. For example, a reinterpretation of bonnets and Russian fur hats.

The most extravagant thing you wish to design is… 
… a collection of hats for the Pope.

The icon piece that will always be in your collections is (why)… 
… now that you asked I guess in every collection I have included a sort of a crown. It is a powerful piece, but at the same time fragile and romantic.

The favourite hat in fashion history, ever, was…
… I guess Chapeau du Matin, made famous by Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany; for men probably the Fedora worn by Harrison Ford in Indiana Jones. 

The biggest challenge for a designer nowadays is… 
… speed; everything is moving very fast and it is hard to keep your core vision alive and also change your style in the rhythm of the society.

We need fashion in our life because…
… it is fun and keep us interested to (re)discover new sides of our personality at different times. 

About Corina Leca we should know… 
… she’s falling in love with every hat she makes, and she loves horses.
