History of Your Cloche Hat
The cloche hat is a fitted, bell-shaped hat for women that was invented in 1908 by milliner Caroline Reboux. They were especially popular from about 1922 to 1933. Its name is derived from cloche, the French word for "bell". During the early twentieth century, the popularity and influence of cloche hats was at its peak.
The 1920’s version of the cloche is iconic. It featured an even more snug fit than its predecessors, and worn so low over the eyebrows that women walked with their chins up and eyes cast down. Fortunately, walking with this kind of poise only added to the allure of the look, as women felt it created an air of confidence and independence in the wearer. During this decade, no woman ever left the house without a chic cloche to top off her look.
