Marinette's derby hat
Very exquisite creation. You definitely have the laboring hands of a hat maker.
— Gabriel, " Mr. Pigeon"
Marinette's derby hat (also called a bowler hat) is a hat designed by Marinette Dupain-Cheng. In " Mr. Pigeon", it wins a fashion competition judged by Gabriel Agreste at Collège Françoise Dupont and the prize is the hat that will be worn by Adrien Agreste during his next photo shoot.
The derby hat is dark gray with fabric overlapped on the crown to look like feathers. The black band has a golden squiggly line on it, part of it actually making Marinette's name, which is seen when the hat is flipped upside down. There is also a light gray bow attached to one side of the hat, along with a pigeon feather attached onto the bow with a copper-colored button.
Tikki's observation in Xavier Ramier inspired Marinette in the hat's creation.
The hat possesses a unique design that utilizes Marinette's own signature, a helpful way to ascertain authenticity.
Adrien about to sneeze after trying the derby hat on.
Because of the real pigeon feather originally used in the hat, Adrien, who is allergic to feathers, has an allergic response to it.
However, by the time of his photo shoot, Marinette replaced it with an artificial feather.
Chloé Bourgeois makes Sabrina Raincomprix steal Marinette's design and makes a replica of the derby hat, but because of Marinette's signature, it is revealed that Chloé is not the designer of the hat.
In her instagram she was proud to have it featured in her first magazine feature.
