Where the runway meets the street

Ever since Pharrell stepped out in that hat at this years Grammys, the world stood up and paid attention. Admittedly the response was a bit cool at first, but after drilling it into our brains – event after event, colorway after colorway, we’ve taken note, with Vivienne Westwood’s now infamous ‘Mountain’ hat currently being the epicenter of popular culture. While some might not be convinced with the ‘Mountain’ hat’s dented shape, or magical floating appearance, the truth is brimmed hats are here to stay. Whether you go for a similar felt number, or a more lightweight straw option, now is the right time to don some sleek headwear. Although heed a word of warning – leave bright colors to the professionals AKA Pharrell, just stick to classic black and you can’t go wrong.
