Sarah was “inspired by the mythology of real-life Cleopatra. The colors and design translate the nemes headdress into a modern garment, something that today’s Cleo might wear to her favorite coffee shop. Brooklyn Tweed Loft’s heathered colors give the hat that perfectly old, cozy feeling, like some secret tomb full of dusty treasures.”
