Bianca Adventurer: Bec & Bridge’s New Collaboration with Akubra

5 Jul
Introducing the Bianca Adventurer, a fedora that is the result of a special collaboration between Bec & Bridge & Iconic Australian hat brand, Akubra.
The Bianca Adventurer was launched alongside the collection that Bec & Bridge designed for Rosemount Australian Fashion Week 2011.
“Collaborating with Akubra seemed like such a natural fit when we came up with the idea of a 1970’s-style fedora for summer,” explained designers Becky Cooper and Bridget Yorston.
The result is the Bianca Adventurer, a timeless fedora updated in five custom-coloured felts and lined in dahlia-printed silk.
For 130 years Akubra has been making its famous felt fur hats, which are 100% Australian made and owned. The process is timely and of the best quality, 11 key steps are taken to produce hats of such a highly regarded quality.
This is the first collaboration Akubra has done with a fashion label that has revolved around Bec & Bridge developing it’s own colours.
