Janessa Leone

Los Angeles-based hat maker Janessa Leone dedicates her craft to the construction of fine-quality headwear that harkens back to a time when the hat made the outfit. Fusing the finest in milliner textiles, like soft lambskin, virgin wool and authentic panama straw, Janessa Leone hats are designed for years of wear. Each Janessa Leone hat is carefully hand-made in the U.S. and designed to combine classic men’s hat shapes — the fedora, the bowler — with dramatically feminine finishes like ultra-wide brims and slim, gold leather hat bands.

Her latest hat collections unite the dichotomy between sharp metal elements with soft structures like virgin wool, and the result is an assembly of stunning women’s fedoras and bowlers that celebrate classic hat silhouettes. These fine quality hats are uniquely constructed to mold intimately to the wearer. Elizabeth Charles is a proud stockist of Janessa Leone fedoras, boleros, straw hats and more.
