When you are in a room with Jose DiGregorio you can feel the energy level rise. He is a burst of optimism. Jose is an artist, a father, and a damn good friend of ours. His work is a true representation of himself; bright and electric. Jose uses geometric patterns to create some very vibrant and fun pieces. We were very fortunate enough to get work with this one-of-a-kind individual on a one-of-a-kind piece of headwear.
The challenge in creating this hat was being able to capture Jose’s unique artwork but at the same time create a piece that was his personal style of clothing. This was slightly difficult because Jose wears a lot of black but his artwork is clearly anything but that. We called on our good friend and designer Curtis Currier to help find a solution and together we created one of our favorite pieces of clothing to date.
The hat itself has a perforated suede crown that reveals the satin galaxy interior of the hat. On the front facing panel there is our de-bossed leather tiger icon. The under visor has a felt print of Jose’s intricate line work. This all finished off with a leather strap with a matching leather top button. It was truly an honor to work with such a great individual like Jose and we hope to create many more projects with him in the future.
