Béton Ciré

founded in 2013 by amélie le roux in britany, france, béton ciré is a combination of street and sea. béton, meaning concrete, refers to the urban world and “street” culture, and ciré, meaning waxed, is a nod to the yellow raincoats worn by mariners. an update of the traditional “breton miki” hat worn by sailors, the caps are a cross between a 6 panel cap and a beanie, harbouring both details and marrying the sea and the city.

béton ciré made its way to hong kong with kapok a year after it was first launched with colette in paris. 4 years on, this trendsetting and original cap is immensely popular here, selling out every delivery and even spawning multiple copies.
