If you are a fashion die-hard, you will already know that simplistic style has taken prominence in the fashion community. Saying goodbye to embossed branding on velour sweatsuits and gym tees, the time has come to ditch the logos and remain fashionably subdued. The difference that separates modern wear from casual design is the ability to look put together from the boardroom to the laundry room alike.
Toronto-based brand Neighburr has just released its first collection of premium ball caps. To celebrate the launch, we had the pleasure of attending the Gotstyle hosted event to celebrate Mark Gatto and his spring/summer designs.
Neighburr is a line of premium hats made for the urban gentlemen, crafted for those who want to stand out without screaming out. Born from the desire of simplicity,Neighburr has produced neutral designs composed of simple graphics and lightweight materials designed to effortlessly fit into every wardrobe. Looking at the designs objectively, Neighburr has caused us to rethink what it means to wear a hat. Ball caps are no longer causal accessories meant to mask a bad hair day, or to toss on during a coffee run. Today brands like Neighburr are demonstrating that this simple accessory can be a fashion statement that speaks to our inner modernist.
Made from either luxe stretch wool, or crisp cotton twill,Neighburr ’s designs are expertly crafted to be lightweight and durable for any occasion.
“This idea came to me when I was packing for a trip to New York”. Explains founder Mark Gatto, “I had a couple great hats but each one suited a different occasion. As I was struggling to fit them all into my suitcase, that was when I thought about creating the essential black hat. Sophisticated, neutral, great for my next lunch meeting, night on the town, or weekend away.”
Utilizing crisp lines, geometric shapes, and inspiration from architecture, Neighburr has quickly become our summer go to. Prices range from $62 to $74, and shipping is free across North America. The collection is sold online at http://neighburr.com.
