Hats

The Beanie’s Big Splash

  • 3rd November 2013

This season we first noticed the beanie in Australian Vogue’s gorgeous “Wild Rose,” feature wherein the oversized accessory looks luxuriously cozy atop her cascading tresses, followed by flowing rich fabrics.

The decadent dusty rose beanie worn throughout the shoot is by Giles, retailing at $850.00.  On the runway it received extra accessories by way of shiny pins and dangling feathers and came in a range of colors.

Knitters the world over stand to make a pretty penny at trying to duplicate them this season.  Playing into this trend, Anthropologie had winter’s biggest hat on the cover and inside cover of their winter catalogue.

You might have packed them away, or given them away at the end of the ’80s.  And, that’s OK.  Because they’re back in a bolder way.  In transparent leopard, sequin and metallic, the visor is really getting its moment in the sun.

The Cat Came Back

  • 28th February 2013

….It just wouldn’t stay away!

 

Since the Givenchy ‘cat ear cap,’ crawled down the runway the trend has literally had 9 lives with ears re-imagined on headbands, leather caps and knitted skull caps popping up everywhere from fashion week in Milan to the street scene in New York.

 

We’ll spotlight the trend—Pinpoint the best looks to buy—Show how to pair
