This winter beret is inspired by my native home Paris and its wintery colour, grey. As for the Eiffel Tower pattern, what better way to picture Paris, it is after all what most people think of first when Paris is mentioned. The beret is a very traditional French item. I just give it a little twist here, but the main features remain traditional, all the way to the little i-cord at the top. I also wanted to bring in my connection to England in the design. My partner is English, so the XOXO cable in the brim refers to that. This is something very English, writing XXXs and OOOs for hugs and kisses.

It has two versions, one traditional beret and one slouchy. The green version pictured is the slouchy version, shown in size M/L


Paris a été mon inspiration pour ce modèle. Un motif aéré rappelle le symbole iconique de Paris, la Tour Eiffel et les diminutions du haut de la tête s’intègrent de façon astucieuse au motif Tour Eiffel.
Les X et O qui entourent la tête sont un clin d’œil à mon partenaire anglais, ils rappellent la coutume anglaise de signer les lettres avec ces symboles des baisers et des câlins.

Ce modèle est disponible en version béret classique ou en version allongée.
