A Note from the Designer

 

At Callanan Hats, we know our customer and we design with her in mind. She has a timeless sense of style, portrayed in understated chic. I like to design hats that are beautiful and timeless, not over cluttered with excessive trims and ornamentation. I like clean silhouettes that enhance the wearer’s con dence and style. A Callanan hat should enhance and not distract from the wearer’s beauty. Since my first collection in 1986, I have never tired of introducing American ladies to the fun and mystique of wearing romantic hats. Be it at the beach or a special occasion, a Callanan hat adds a sense of je ne sais quoi. After graduating from FIT-Fashion Institute of Technology NYC in 1984, I had the great fortune of working on bespoke hats for NYC Opera’s repertoire like Rigoletto (1988), Broadway shows and movies like Working Girl (1988) with Melanie Griffith, Eight Men Out (1988)Sommersby (1993) with Richard Gere and Jodi Foster, The Birdcage (1996) with Robin Williams and Nathan Lane, to name a few. In 1995 Dorfman Pacific Hat Company acquired the Callanan label and so it is an honor to present my 24th collection for them this year-2019. A hat is a very special accessory, it delivers instant glamor. Hats can say many things about the wearer from “look at me” to “leave me alone” as when they are used as shields by celebrities from the paparazzi.

Wear them in good health!
