November’s Hat Attack features the mini beret Taxi! by Mademoiselle Slassi HERE.  My collaboration with Karima Slassi began this past July when she and her daughter visited Denver.  Karima is from Paris, but had lived in Colorado years ago.  We had been Facebook friends for several years, and I was very excited when she contacted me and we arranged a meetup for dinner.


“The Taxi! line of hats is emblematic of Mademoiselle Slassi because the yellow color perfectly expresses the spirit of the brand: an ode to joy, elegance and originality. The mini beret Taxi! plays with the chic and the mischief of Parisian women.”…Karima Slassi

“In 2009, Karima Slassi launched Mademoiselle Slassi : a brand of hats and head accessories, designed and artisanally handcrafted in Paris. Classy and sassy, Mademoiselle Slassi mixes timeless and retro hat shapes with contemporary materials, details and colors, to bring stylish modern headwear that reflect poetic elegance and originality.

To Karima, hats are not just the ultimate touch of elegance of an outfit. It’s the perfect accessory to express the multiple sides of a personnality : someone will wear a netting veil to suggest the femme fatale within ; someone else will wear a hat in the style of Indiana Jones to show her adventurer mind. This one will choose a bright color hat to tell his joie de vivre ; while the other will proudly adorn his head with a top hat to become the dandy within.

Someone will wear a large floppy hat to express his artistic side ; the other will put on a delicious retro cloche hat to travel in time. The hat is a symbolic accessory that brings back history, mythes, fantasies ; it’s an open door to our imagination and conveys dreams.”…Karima Slassi


Karima Slassi and her daughter in Denver, July, 2016

Karima describes herself “as « a milliner of the 21st century » but if she likes to hear that her hats have a retro flair, she prefers to hear that they are definitely contemporary hats. Mademoiselle Slassi hats can be plain or extravagant, classy or sassy. Each design fits the beauty and the personality of the wearer, allowing him to tell his own story. Because these hats are here to showcase the wearer and not the reverse.

The rich color palette and the infinity of details in the trimings provide an exquisite « twist » to these elegant hats that can be worn either with a casual outfit or an exceptionnal one. Hence the slogan of the brand :  « Hats to be special every day ; hats for a very special day »”…Karima Slassi

Thank you Karima and your lovely daughter, for a wonderful visit and “hat chat.”  I adore the mini beret, with its vibrant color and beautiful shape.  Taxi! will have a new life here in Denver, and accompanied me to dinner this past Friday evening.  This divine yellow chapeau did not go unnoticed!

  1. Dear Judith, I love the way you have combined the “mischief of Parisian women” with the Asian. Absolutely beautiful, playful and stylish. Thanks for the story of this talented milliner and how wonderful that you met up for dinner. Elizabeth. xx

  2. You look beautiful in that whole outfit. And you can create a whole other outfit by slicking your hair back like Rudolph Valentino and in that outfit you will transform from a chic Parisian to a powerful matador-a! 🙂

  3. My dearest Judith, my curl is my hat, so here I am over linking, lol
    You are more fantastic every single day.
    Adorable and stylish
    Much love

  4. This little beret style hat is just wonderful on you and I love how you have paired it with your Oriental jacket – French and Oriental styles collide.I have had a peek at her site, a milliner with such a quirky flair.Thank you for hosting Hat Attack , always a pleasure to see other hat lovers.

  5. Lovely little yellow beret. And I also love that little bag the Slassi’s daughter is wearing.
    Still have no photo of me and my new hat to share on Hat Attack. I hope next month. I believe I am not really a hat person, despite my attempts. I think my hairstyle doesn’t help either. But it is the best style for me and my thin hair. Short hair is not really me. I am not a classic beauty.

  6. What a bright fabulous hat! It is like an exclamation point on your outfit.

    I’m really losing it over that amazing Asian top/jacket though. Miss Fisher all the way!

    I must come back and link up : )


  7. Love this little bright beacon of a hat! The simple shape and bold colour pairs beautifully with your embroidered Asian jacket.
