Renowned Lebanese couturier Elie Saab and legendary Italian milliner Borsalino have embarked on a unique partnership, giving birth to an exclusive capsule collection. This luxury collaboration sees Elie Saab infusing his signature refined femininity into Borsalino’s iconic felt hat, the “Nila” model, which boasts a touch more volume than the classic Borsalino design. Each hat in this collection is adorned with a ribbon featuring Elie Saab’s golden monogram jewel.
Available in three exquisite shades—powder pink, white, and black—these exquisite creations are offered at both houses’ boutiques and online stores.
This remarkable “Borsalino x Elie Saab” capsule continues to diversify the offerings of the Lebanese fashion house. Elie Saab Jr., the CEO of the group, stated that it seamlessly expands their accessories line, catering to the ever-evolving desires and demands of their esteemed clientele. This isn’t the first time the house has broadened its horizons through collaboration; last year, they unveiled a lingerie collection with Aubade. In recent years, Elie Saab has accelerated its expansion, venturing into interior design with a home collection and real estate by crafting luxury residences in partnership with Gulf Islamic Investments (GII).
Notably, the brand has inaugurated stores in Monaco and a flagship boutique in the Middle East, marking their third in the Gulf region within a year. With established flagships in Paris, Beirut, New York, London, and Milan, the brand’s global presence continues to flourish.
On the other hand, Borsalino has been actively pursuing collaborations to elevate its visibility and reinforce its position in the realm of luxury. Under the creative guidance of Jacopo Politi, the famed milliner has embarked on collections with notable brands like Chloé, AMI Paris, and Vilebrequin, adding new layers to its storied legacy.
