The pret-a-porter puts on the hat for spring-summer 2020

Monsieur Dior in his Little Dictionary of Fashion said the hat is an essential accessory in every outfit, because in a sense it represents the best way to express one’s own personality.

There has been much written about a fashion piece that has become an indisputable symbol of elegance, distinction and sophistication. On the catwalk, designers have also opted to take risks with both extravagant and refined designs to bring a distinctive stamp to each collection.

Next, we select 5 hats that will mark the pulse of fashion in the coming months.

The Nina Ricci’s bucket

The French brand’s bucket hat once again surprised for the Spring Summer 2020 collection. The duo formed by Rushemy Botter and Lisi Herrebrugh presented a young and romantic collection where the shell hat became the geometric and structured drop of the collection. The buckets (already christened with that name) were presented in bright colours, bringing liveliness to a collection inspired by the nostalgia of a summer trip to the beach.

The safari hat of Alberta Ferretti

Inspired by the 1970s, Alberta Ferretti added the icing on the cake with safari hats to a retro, hippie and youthful collection. In addition to high pants and slouchy looks, suede skirts and denim jumpsuits, loose-fitting hats in cape and earth tones were also included to give them a decidedly youthful retro-safari style.

Multiculture in Issey Miyake

If there’s one thing we can be certain of, it’s that Issey Miyake’s fashion shows are anything but conventional. And to top it off, the hat wasn’t going to be any less.

Satoshi Kondo, the brand’s creative director, presented a collection where the imagination in the accessories went hand in hand with the 77 looks he had designed. Straw hats, in block, pamelas in vibrant colours, raincoats with oversize hoods and sun visors were key to reveal a happy and fun show.

Turbans are back for Missoni

At Missoni, men’s and women’s garments merged to create a collection that went beyond gender barriers. Angela Missoni has incorporated elegant and neutral turbans with prints in different colors that highlighted the bohemian and chic style of the house.

One straw hat for Dior

If we’re talking hats, the French Maison couldn’t be less. For the Spring-Summer 2020 collection, Dior once again rescued the indisputable summer trend: the straw hat.

Inspired by the universe of gardens and landscaping of Cahterine Dior (sister of monsieur Christian Dior), the Maria Grazia Chiuri fashion show presented a collection where straw hats in neutral colours and hand-crafted workmanship were immersed in a magical fashion show that proved to be gentle, cunning and delicate.

An accessory that put the icing on the cake to their looks, making them more rural, relaxed and ideal for a perfect summer on the beach.
