The WORLD, from New Zealand

To my enormous surprise, I found that there is another beret label from New Zealand. Yes, there is Hills Hats (whose berets are principally made in Pakistan and only finished here), but fashion label WORLD now has it's own model.
WORLD was established in Auckland in 1989 by Denise L'Estrange-Corbet and Francis Hooper.  Fuelled by their energy and passion, their vision and work has seen their label develop from a cupboard at the back of an arcade, to one of the leading fashion houses in New Zealand. Certainly WORLD is this country's fashion house that is most widely regarded as being "avant-garde". 
The berets are made of 100% NZ grown merino wool, are unlined and fitted with a sized headband; made in New Zealand. By whom, I don't know unfortunately (as said to be a trade secret).
The berets sell at NZ$199.00 through WORLD's online store
