Malchijah Hats x BlackFashion

“Hats are Back in Fashion”

After the loss of his son, milliner Marcus started creating hats as a way of coping. This therapy process later tuned into the go-to hat shop that many Brooklynites patron. Every hat is personally made by the milliner himself inside. Malchijah Hats is located in the heart of Fort Green, Brooklyn. The shop is always filled with neighborhood kids doing their homework, or random art folks straggling in from the art galleries across the street. What I love most about Malchijah Hats is it’s fondness for the church culture of hats as well as the everyday funky hats that can be found there.

Brooklyn, New York

In early 1955, not long after her break-up with Joe DiMaggio, Marilyn improbably told radio interviewer Dave Garroway, “I want to retire to Brooklyn.” What she really meant was that she enjoyed her clandestine meetings with Arthur Miller, who was at that time living in Brooklyn Heights with first wife Mary Slattery Miller. Photographer Sam Shaw said of Marilyn in late 1955 and early 1956, as she visited her new beau Arthur, that “Brooking became Nirvana to her, a magical place, her true home.”
