Inspired by the first fedoras, which were primarily worn by women. The term Fedora was coined as a result of the 1882 play, Fédora, written by Victorien Sardou for Sarah Bernhardt, who played the title role - Princess Fédora Romazov. Bernhardt was known for boldy donning male fashion - the fedora itself considered to fit more in that category at a time when women were fighting for equal rights. The Women’s Rights Movement subsequently adopted it as a symbol.
Our Bernhardt is a nod to its 19th Century birth and that no gender should be limited by societal expectations in their fashion choices.
