Vi­sors might seem like they are the ex­clu­sive ter­ri­tory of ten­nis stars and golf dads, but they’re en­ter­ing the fash­ion arena this spring thanks to a col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween Aurora James, the It girl be­hind la­bel Brother Vel­lies, and hat maker ex­traor­di­naire Gigi Bur­ris. Their col­lec­tion of straw hats in­cludes Anne of Green

Gables-in­spired boaters and, sur­prise of all sur­prises, vi­sors. “When I was younger, my grand­mother al­ways used to wear vi­sors,” says James. “There’s some­thing fun and fresh to me about the idea of a vi­sor.” Mar­itime in­flu­ence runs through the en­tire col­lec­tion. James’s grand­mother, her muse, grew up in Wood­stock, N.B., and the hats chan­nel the ro­mance of hik­ing trails near the Saint John River and en­coun­ter­ing seals or other wildlife. James calls the vi­sor with the rib­bon bow, which she per­son­ally hand-dyed at de­signer Ryan Roche’s house, “so fem­i­nine and ex­actly what you’d want to wear on a sum­mer’s day.”
