Stetson‘s SS 2017 collection is inspired by the world of street art where culture, style and expression meet. Manhattan‘s streets are ablaze with mural graffiti by artists depicting birds threatened by climate change for the National Audubon Society‘s mural project. All hats & caps embody Stetson‘s commitment for durable quality and courage for an individual style - similar to the artists who leave their traces in Manhattan and create discoveries in the historical NY cityscape.

Richard Alexander Caraballo a.k.a. minusbaby on the Bird: “I chose a Black-throated Blue Warbler because they travel from the northeastern United States to the Caribbean once the weather gets a bit too cold. The symbols reference its calls and song. I have a thing for black, white and blue, too.” www.instagram.com/minusbaby http://stetson.eu/en/houndstooth-linen-beanie-47547-1 Location: 3637 Broadway, New York, NY, 10031 — on Broadway between 149th and 150th.

Danielle Mastrion on the bird: “I chose the Roseate Spoonbill because of its incredible colors. I was originally going to paint a few separate gates for the Roseate but decided to do one big wraparound, dedicating an entire gate to the flight feathers in order to really express the Roseate's colors & incorporate the full breadth and space of the corner.” Location: The corner of 156th and Broadway www.instagram.com/daniellebknyc http://stetson.eu/en/raffia-crochet-hat-47608-1
Peter Daverington on the Bird: “I chose the Bald Eagle because they have such powerful, wise, and enigmatic heads.

Socky, born Joshua Goody Garcia on the Bird: “The courtship flight of the male Allen’s Hummingbird is a frantic back-and-forth flight arc of about 25 ft (7.6 m) similar to the motion of a swinging pendulum, followed by a high-speed dive from about 100 ft (30 m).” www.instagram.com/socky.13 http://stetson.eu/en/fedora-panama-1-hat-47621-1 Location: 101 Edgecombe Ave, New York, NY 10030 — on Edgecombe between 139th and 140th streets.
