Hats could be worn for many different reasons…
They could be worn for protection against enviornmental elemants. They could be worn for religious reasons–celebrations of devotion and praise. They could be worn as a safety precaution, as a head-cover against mighty, strong objects. They could be worn to denote one’s nationality or military regiment.
Hats could be worn as something daring and wild. Hats could be worn as something elegant and sophisticated. Hats are wonderfully aesthetic fashion accessories!
For Fall 2012, hats are very much in style. They have been seen on the runways countless times–from dark fur head pieces to Dr. Seuss-like appeals. They have been seen in the stores in numerous, zany ways–colors of hot pink, powder blue, moss green, and chocolate brown. They have been seen in magazines–in lush editorials and photo shoots with meaning and detail. Hats are truly everywhere!
Hats have been in the fashion world for ages! They have been in style since the times of early Greece and Rome. They have transformed significantly through the ages. From petasos to veils to hoods to caps. From top hats to bonnets to cloche hats. From skull caps to turban pieces to felt hats. From dainty lightness to flamboyent wearable art pieces, hats have returned with emotion, lust, and pure, raw desire.
On the runways for this Fall, hats have arisen to popularity once again. They have arrived under the sparkling runway lights. They have developed into designs of creativity and pleasure. The styles of these hats range from fur accents to ornamented textures. They cover a wide spectrum of kooky appeal and uncomplicated grace. They cover a color spectrum of bright, jeweled hues to subtle, muted tones. A mad-hatter appeal, a rich, luxurious want, a vintage old age admiration…these hats are remarkable.
With Marc Jacobs “Alice in Wonderland” inspiration and Louis Vuitton extravagancy, with Roberto Cavalli’s feathered masterpieces, with Anna Sui’s playful owls, with Ralph Lauren’s ’20s boyish allure and charm, and with Missoni’s fur fancies, …it is clear that the hats are soaring into the atmosphere of fashion!
