It is the ridiculously over sized designer hat that has taken over instagam and is already the summer’s biggest hit. Introduced on the runaway in February by French designer Simon Porte Jacquemus, it has become the must have accessory for those who can afford it. For $770 you too can look like a stylish celebrity/model walking the beach as someone who wants to make a statement, while hiding at the same time. Let’s face it, I would get one in a heart beat if this straw hat (yes it’s made of 100%) straw, was not that expensive. I mean, look at this crazy hat! It’s the epitome of luxury living. It’s so big you can’t pack it yet you can somehow manage to leave it at your villa and take it with you to the nearby beach. The size itself screams luxury.
You can’t help but want to walk the beach in your fave bikini and this hat! Since this hat has been long been sold out, you will need to settle for another oversized designer hat this season. It seems this hat has inspired many other designers to take on the oversized hat design. Maybe we will see some affordable replicas before the summer is over. While I wait for the version I can afford I will day dream of the many ways I would be caught styling this hat and living in the lap of luxury. Where would you be caught wearing this hat? Let’s take a look at how the rich and famous have done it so far.
