The Steve Zissou Beanie
— Iconic, Red and Sometimes Pointy
You may know it from Wes Anderson's The Life Aquatic, where Bill Murray wears it in all its glory — the iconic red beanie cap. It has been an adventurer's hallmark for years, popularized by the likes of oceanographer Jaques Cousteau.
The most iconic one is without a doubt the pointy one worn by Steve Zissou himself, but that's not the end of it. The whole crew dresses in the archetypal blue-red combination, but each of them has a distinct style of beanie from each other.
When we made our two foundational Red Hat Factory beanies — The Southlander and The North Cap — it was with The Life Aquatic and the Steve Zissou aestethic heavily in mind.
One of the Zissou Crew — Your personal beanie style
A core value in the design behind our Steve Zissou inspired beanies, was to embrace variety. Because there is no tag, you fold the beanie exactly as you will — once, twice or full roll. And because of how stretchy natural wool is, it adapts to your head over time, becoming one of a kind, because you are one of a kind.
