The New Berets by Le Béret Français
Yes, they're in!! The new berets by Le Béret Français.
Personally, I am most pleased with the eco-berets made of recycled materials - the ultimate summer beret! Now in a large range of colours.
Le Béret Français developed these fantastic Eco-berets out of recycled materials: wool, synthetics, cotton and silk.
They named it the Béret de Printemps ("Spring Beret"), perfect summer and warm weather wear; super light and extremely soft to the touch (thanks to a high silk content). So light, you'd easily forget you're wearing a beret!
I have to admit, when I first saw these berets, I had my doubts (too light, too soft, too little substance...). Now I'm hooked! After a few days of seriously warm weather, I can't think of anything better to wear than these berets. Highly recommended!
But also new are the Bérets Patriotand Irlande. Similar to the tri-couleur, the Patriot shows the colours of the French flag (or the British, US, Australian, NZ and many other countries for that matter), but on a more subtle grey base. Absolutely unique, in both the manufacturing process and appearance. Beautiful berets with a festive touch!
No red-white-blue for the Irish; they have their own three-colour beret.
