A symbol of protest
An attribute of Che Guevara and Fidel Castro, worn by the members of radical Black Panther Party. A few decades ago, a beret was a symbol of fight for one’s ideas and values. Today we can spot its revival at the catwalks where designers such as Dior turn an accessory into a feminist emblem.
A symbol of a Parisian
Vital element of an idyllic vision of a true Parisian. Its source can be traced back to the films of the New Wave. They have created an idea of a modern woman with a love for fashion. Anna Karina wearing a simple, black beret is still our icon.
A symbol of independence
Once a film motif, it has infiltrated culture. The roles of Faye Dunaway in ‘Bonnie and Clyde’ or Romy Schneider in ‘Innocents with Dirty Hands’ portrayed women both, dangerous and intelligent. A beret has become synonym for an emancipated femininity that was translated into bold, original fashion styling, mixing the feminine with the masculine.
