Barbisio hats have been produced in the Biella Valley since 1862, but there’s nothing traditional about this design—in fact, it still feels sharply contemporary today. The exclamation points—outfitted with felt hats, canes, and a boutonniere—appear as though they might just dance right out of the frame with jazzy bravado. This particular version of the design advertises availability at a Lucerne dealer. Mingozzi was an active Bolognese designer who ran his own studio as well as an advertising agency named Alta. Rare!
