"Fashion has long been my drug, a potent elixir that - mixed with one part of perseverance, two parts imagination and shaken with a dash of reality - has taken me on a crazy rollercoaster ride to a place where dreams can come true. (...) With ambition, anything is possible..." Antonio Berardi (Fashion Designer) in Fashion&Textile - The Essential Careers Guide.
The men’s hat is one of the
most stylish accessories ever as feel it never goes out of style. It might
change a little bit on shape or material from season to season depending on
some running trend but it’s always kept as a classic and definitely and added
value to your outfit.
A hat should always be an
essential in any fashion’s fascinated men’s wardrobe.
If we move back in the past
the figure of a man with a hat was always a synonym of social status and
sometimes even a sign of an eclectic and sophisticated style as the icons I’m
presenting just below.
I’ve become a big fan of hats
these last seasons, first the winter hats easy to find around in any second
hand shops and lately the trilby hat that has been quite popular last summer.
For this season the hat has
not been taking in consideration as a must-have on the most flashed runways but
they’re always an accessory to take in consideration for either winter or
summer. However I’ve managed to find some trendy hats on the following shows
for this AW10.
I find hats very useful in
winter when It concerns of keeping you warm, protecting yourself from the wind,
the cold or even the rain (who doesn’t remember the unforgettable performance
of Gene Kelly “Singing in the Rain”).
On the pictures below I’m
showing some streetstyle examples of how to wear and combine it depending on
the occasion and obviously on your attitude towards fashion and style.
