hats off


For every fad, there comes a backlash.
The irony is that often this backlash will, in itself become a fad, but let's leave that thought for now.

As a little backlash against the fedora fad of 2007/08 comes a preference for some "proper" headwear. Think Mary poppins and men in boater hats.
My choice of headwear this summer is going to be the boater, I curse the day I didn't go ahead and buy one from a fantastic little second hand shop in Ross-on-Wye after trying it on twice.

The hats featured in Jalouse March 2009 are pleasingly squished in appearance, they're very much in the style of Mary Poppins. They make me want to create a shamelessly crafty version for myself; some quality street wrappers glued here? A bunch of flowers stuck there?

this is such a wonderfully whimsical trend, I'm quite certain I couldn't actually pull it off unfortunately, but I admire those who can

A La Mode said...

I love the hat on Chloe! I really want to go see the hat exhibition at the V&A I hear its incredible.

Hanna said...

hats are so loud right now... but the plainest ones are the best, in my opinion...

great post!

oh i looooove these hats, i've come across some but none of them really stay on my head, maybe i could fasten a string sort of contraption but that might ruin the look....
i'm also going to grow my hair out to wear in a braid just like filippa berg.. sooo pretty.
our pal Onilee makes fabulous hats/headpieces that are just like the ones in the bottom photos, they fly right off the shelves here in winnipeg.

i love the boaters! the last three pics of your post are just stunning, the colours are mesmerising. i've been trying to wear more colour, seeing as its so hot here in sydney and colour is about the only thing i can wear without trying to bog myself down along with the heat..

a hat would be perfect to go along with this weather actually! there's a boys schoool around here that has a boater as their school hat.. most funny to see them all dressed up.

Home Girl said...

wow hot! thanks for pointing out the boater. as always you have your finger firmly on the pulse. i'm feeling smug because i picked one up and have had it banging around but didn't have the confidence to go with my gut instinct and wear it. maybe now ill try it on again and wear it. sometimes it takes bravery to be an early adopter!

Emma said...

I want a boater soooo bad! must start searching!!!!
