CHAPITO is first of all a story of two fresh met friends, in love with Fashion and Hats and very closed each other through their passion and sense of humour despite their differences.
Geneviève Moine, a Swiss woman, managed prestigious fashion-shops in Neuchâtel and was at the same time a fashion consultant/advisor to creators represented in her stores. She brought up with her husband their four sons.
Sonia Rehder, a German-Parisian stylist, studied at ESMOD, freelance with eclectic missions, from Etam to Paco Rabanne, with the desire to create a universal and accessible fashion, eternally single, always in love.
Our goal is to collect €1,000.
This money will be used for buying more raw materials in order to launch our new collection and to develop our brand by creating 100 or 200 hats.
- If we collect €2,000 we can develop our creativity by appealing fashion school student trainees
- If we collect €3,000 it will allow us to create our on-line website
- If we collect €4,000 we can develop a nice advertising campaign
CHAPITO, it is a small, unique and funny hat, painted with coloured sprays and customized piece by piece, tried out, corrected, reinvented, loved till its coming out. The fabrics used come from fashion shows, adorned themselves with Swarovski vintage crystals or white pearly rings; it is an urban or festive hat, to be worn from Ibiza to Goa or Portofino, from the beach to the office, from early morning till night’s end.
Each piece has its certificate, (with its date of creation, its name and the buyer’s name).
Example of a certificate: CHAPITO and its style
We get our inspiration from street-life and during our trips: the sunset colours, the sparkling dress of a party girl, the brightly coloured Brazilian bracelets, the range of a Basquia painting... give us the Chapito inspiration of the moment.
CHAPITO is made of straw paper, 100 % natural, "made in France " (Paris 16th district;-)!), so cool. We bargain the fabrics from fashion shows, cut old scarves, buy vintage Swarovski pearls or white pearly rings. And while we have a look at our collected treasures we begin to create our hats associating colours and materials.
CHAPITO is a thumb at the “prêt-à-porter” mass market’s nose offering its buyer the possibility to acquire a unique personal item, luxury at an affordable price ( 69 euros) in our present world.
CHAPITO is the wish to federate a "club-spirit" for Chapito addicts, not by “the standardization " but on the contrary the privilege to wear a unique hat.
Our dream would be to distribute them via "capsule" collections in concept fashion shops and later to create an on-line sale website with the possibility of exclusive and interactive creation according to the customers’ desires.
