The Wishlist: Hats And Caps

The Wishlist: Hats And Caps

Caps are back at the frontline of fashion. From the early days of American baseball, through the hey-day of ‘80s and ‘90s hip-hop, to more modern incarnations of this perennial 21st century style staple, the cap has proven its inestimable worth time and again. As a bad hair day contingency plan, as a way to swear allegiance to the team (or brand) of your choice, and simply put, as a means of looking “cool”. A cap will give you an air of devil-may-care informality no matter the context, so hats off to the stylish people who have worked so hard on all our hair-washing-averse behalves to bring them back into the style limelight. Now more than ever luxury brands are meeting the demand for urban-inspired pieces, and the caps and hats on offer this season are some of the most directional to date. From baseball caps to trucker hats and snapbacks, these are the season’s most wearable styles.

LOGO CAPS

The front of a cap is the perfect place for logo exposure that will ensure your style disciples understand the full extent of your stylish superiority. Wear Dolce & Gabbana’s classic white baseball hat for summer or the must-have accessory of the season, the Givenchy cap.

MONOGRAMMED

Monograms have been a luxury indicator in fashion since Louis Vuitton stamped his first leather trunk. Now, fashion houses are lending their signatures to streetwear staples like caps and hats. We venture that Gucci and MCM are doing it best this season.

CAMO PRINT

We’re no strangers to the appeal of camo here at Flannels, having embraced the military print’s many great qualities here and here. As we’ve said before, Valentino's baseball cap in a camo print is a great entry point to the trend.

RETRO COLOUR

For even the most subdued of dressers, the temptations of pop-bright colours and playful prints come spring and festival season is hard to ignore. Give in to your impulse with an exclusive cap from Kenzo’s Memento collection or Dsquared2’s logo snapback.
