A flashback to more history and culture with the Marlene Beret beanies from Melbourne’s top knitwear label - Otto and Spike. Inspired by the renowned Femme Fatale extraordinaire of yesteryear - Marlene Dietrich, this beanie is made from the finest Australian lambswool.
For the unintended, Marlene, born in Berlin in the 1920s, was a bisexual who defied conventional gender roles. She dressed in a top hat and tails to perform 'male' songs, did boxing at Sabri Mahir's boxing studio, and attended Berlins' drag balls. In 1930, the actress starred in a movie called Morocco, where her character - a cabaret singer dressed in a male tuxedo - kisses another woman. Marlene was part of a secret society of underground closeted lesbian & bisexual film actresses in Hollywood. This group, affectionately known as 'Marlene's Sewing Circle' was rumoured to include the likes of Greta Garbo, Claudette Colbert, and Edith Piaf, among others.
