The possibility of mixing luxury and streetwear is a relatively new development in the history of style. What used to be two very distinct worlds are now one and the same, and that’s perhaps most plainly obvious in the world of headwear. Luxury caps represent the intersection of accessible style and luxury fashion. For those looking to elevate their everyday fits, there’s really no easier way than by adding the proverbial cherry on top in the form of a luxury baseball cap.
Of course, the pros of luxury caps don’t end at accessibility. The baseball cap is a year-round accessory, but one that’s genuinely useful during summer. Half form, half function, luxury caps are the sidekick that we all need to lead us through the sometimes tricky summer style season.
