The Confidence hat is inspired by the evocative scene in The Sound of Music when Maria first approaches the von Trapp house and bolsters herself with song for a new adventure. The hat’s broad stripes and embroidered flower pattern give an elegant and subtle wink to Maria’s bag in a thoroughly fresh and appealing way.
