What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

The Mad Hatter


hat 0


There’s a lot of overlap between beautiful and bizarre, between stylish and clownish, between haute and hilarious. Tel Aviv hat designer MaorZabarHats seems to dwell mostly in that grey area. But as silly as some of his designs are, they are beautifully executed and wonderfully joyful. Unless I was in costume, I can’t really see myself wearing one of them in public, but I certainly applaud their entertainment value. They’re also putting me in mind of spring, which I am very, very ready for!

Of course, I’m posting the kookiest ones, but Zabar offers some comparatively sane-looking ones as well.

I’d love to hear what you think!

Epilogue: I was reminded of a great Burl Ives recording that seems too good not to share. Here’s a little bug music!

  1. I wish I was a hat person but I don’t look good in them. However, I would not wear any of these if I were. Great imaginations and i love the venus fly trap hat!!

  2. Some of them are almost wearable. The one with the dragonflies or maybe the one with the cherry pie today, since it is pi day.

  3. Those are amazing! I love the dragonfly, fly trap, and foxglove hats in particular. I love hats – not necessarily flamboyant ones – but I have a large head. I even struggle to find men’s hats that fit my fat bonce. The struggle is real.


  4. As a hat person, I am utterly smitten. So gorgeous.

  5. Thank you! I’m actually pruning my collection some just because I don’t have room for them all. But only getting rid of the cheep sun hats at least for now. They take up so much space and I probably don’t need five of them.

  6. I love hats. At one time I collected beautiful antique hats, but I’m glad to say not one of these hats would you find in my collection.
