SuperDuper Hats AW14 Pitti Preview
Following the outstanding opening show Matteo Gioli and his crew put together, there wasn’t much more else to say about SuperDuper Hats… A closer look at their debut stand presented an outstanding array of hats and caps, all in a variety of models and luxurious materials that immediately caught your attention.
Besides the unique aesthetic and attention to detail poured into each model, the understated color palette was absolutely stunning featuring shades of teal, blue, camel, grey and brown. Handmade in Italy, these hats exude quality and a trademark character that makes them my first choice when compared to other high-end offerings out there…

SuperDuper Hats Runway Show
As winners of “Who Is On Next” of the previous edition, it was up to Matteo Gioli and his team to host the unofficial opening event for Pitti Uomo 85. Incorporating their love for a retro-vintage universe and unique trademark aesthetic, the show reenacted railway workers of old, dressed in overalls (by CAMO) and the brand’s outstanding hats. Models were in perfect synch with an addictive tune, setting the pace for the metalic soundtrack associated with railway construction, which was later heard throughout the Fortezza.
It’s no easy task pulling off a runway show focusing on hats alone, but SuperDuper Hats managed to create an immersive experience that got everyone enjoying the moment besides the elements that comprised each look.

Justin Doss looking impeccable as always…For me, he’s one of nowadays style icons and I’ve got to hand it to him for bringing back proper hats as his own individual trademark…
