A vintage French student uniform beret known as a Khâlot dating from the 1980s. This hat is traditionally worn by the students from the elite preparatory schools for Sciences and engineering studies. It has a classic shape with a pointed front and back and has been manufactured from dark navy blue wool with contrasting red piping. The interior has a faux leather head band.
The beret has been decorated with a collection of unique gilt metal pins. Each of the pins has been added to personalize the hat and are filled with symbolism. The individual pins were added to show the student's achievement and interest: for example, the words "Stan Taupe" indicates the college and course of the student (Lycée Stanislas in Paris for Science and engineering). the fleur de lys indicates that they were a scout, the camel followed by the number 4 that they spent four years in boarding school, the bloom that they were always present for sports, etc.
The classes préparatoires aux grandes écoles (CPGE), commonly called "classes prépas" or "prépas", are a two-year curriculum extensible to three-years, acting as a prep course with the main goal of training undergraduate students for enrollment in one of the grandes écoles. The grandes écoles of France are higher education establishments aside the mainstream framework of the public universities. They include sciences & engineering schools, business schools, specific humanities schools, but include neither medical institutes, nor architecture institutes nor law institutes. They are generally focused on a single subject area, such as engineering or business, have a moderate size, and are often quite selective in their admission of students. Due to their competitive entrance exams, they are widely regarded as a prestigious curriculum by students, and traditionally have produced most of France’s scientists and executives.
12" Long x 5.5" Tall x 23" in circumference
(30 cm x 14 cm x 59 cm).
The vintage Khâlot is in good condition with some signs of age and wear. There are holes to the fabric next to the gilt letter S. There are light surface marks and patina to some of the pins.
