Introducing our Rebirth Fedora Collaboration with Oritsé Williams

Rebirth Fedora hat with Oritsé Williams

Our Rebirth fedora hat has been designed and created by singer/songwriter and  founding member of pop group JLS Oritsé Williams.  Inspired by the legend of the phoenix rising from the ashes it is a celebration of life after adversity. This stunning fedora represents empowerment, courage and inner strength. 

See our fashion video shot by Vera’s ferociously talented brother Denson Baker featuring Oritsé and the Rebirth Fedora.

The features of the Rebirth fedora

This killer fedora has a printed phoenix silk fabric with a suede band featuring tiger’s eye and red coral. It is made of black wool felt that is hand scorched for a true fiery distressed look and is detailed with a classic phoenix conch, compass concho and three stunning pheasant feathers.


It is available in small, medium and large sizes. Perfect for you if you want a re-start, a change in direction, or looking to create a new bad ass look that will give you confidence and the edge you have been looking for.

The many Vera Black fedora hats of Oritsé Williams

Oritsé is no stranger to Vera Black as he has been styled by Shelina Somani Lewis who loves our designs of hats and accessories. Oritsé is often seen in his El Capitan fedora, which was featured in his collaboration (see below) with Harley Davidson. He wore another Vera Black Hat for his Bridal Editorial with KUSH Magazine, but most notably he was seen wearing our Rose Sunset fedora in his beautiful wedding to Kazz Kumar in Jamaica featured in HELLO Magazine. So it was an obvious joint decision for Vera and Oritsé to collaborate on a hat design.
