FULL BRAND STORY
After seeing his two sons wearing Brooklyn-style caps (a Snapback and a 5 Panel), Jerome Gauthier decided to create an alternative and very crafted cap. Being the son of an osteopath, Jerome has fond memories of a happy childhood studying the skeletons in his father’s office. Little did he know that this simple seemingly innocent act would result in the design and creation of the 'Cap Trick', by using three pieces of fabric to represent frontal and parietal skull plates.
The adaptation of his sketches into prototypes has been entrusted to Clotilde Toussaint, a hat maker who was voted Best French Craftsman ('Meilleur Ouvrier de France') in 2011. With artisanal know-how preserved and passed on since 1860, Les Toiles du Soleil provides the colour-fast cotton cloths, as well as pearled lambskin. Finally, Dandurand, a famous French hat maker with 120 years of experience and heritage, produces the entire cap, including the cut, assembly and finishing.
In collaboration with these Living Heritage Companies (The EPV label), Jerome Gauthier has created a cap with an innovative three-sided design that is a true ambassador for French-made excellence. In a nod to the sporting expression 'hat-trick', the Cap Trick is closer to jazz than rap, to boots than sneakers, and it transposes American cultural codes into Parisian elegance.
With Cap Trick and his label Le Panache Paris, Jerome Gauthier confirms his great talent as a designer, his exquisite taste and his strong preference for freedom and style, as opposed to fashion and uniformity.
Le Panache Paris relies on detailed, passionate, and highly skilled manufacturing, as evidenced by the pictures from the workshop on the left.
Halfway between tradition and modernity, between exceptional craftsmanship and advanced technology, headgear manufacturer Dandurand has brought its respect for materials and shapes up to perfection.
From pattern-making to visor/brim templates cutting, from preparation to assembly, from stitching to top stitching, caps require an expert touch, and they take shape step-by-step in the hands ('les Petites Mains') of the workshop's craftsmen and craftswomen.
Peeling and pampering are the final manufacturing stages, the finishing touches to complete the making of the Cap Trick and ensure its remarkable quality.
