Fashion Week: Bucket Hats are Back

Friday 13 July 2018

Yes, you read that right. Bucket hats, those cloth caps with low hanging brims often seen on the likes of fishermen, are making a comeback.

This summer, the look appeared on a number of catwalks at both London and New York Fashion Week. It featured in collections from the likes of Prada, Burberry, Gucci, and other esteemed brands. But looking at the big picture, this new trend isn’t entirely surprising.

This all comes as a part of a general 90’s fashion resurgence. Oakleys-style blade sunglasses have begun to appear such celebrities as Kim Kardashian and Rita Ora and a handful of models looked as if they walked straight out of The Matrix at New York fashion week. The nostalgia has even begun to appear in music, with the album cover of Axwell/\Ingrosso’s recent single ‘Dancing Alone’ featuring a girl clad entirely in 90’s classics. It only makes sense that the bucket had would eventually make the list.

So break out your blade sunglasses and toss on a bucket hat to be both sun-safe and stylish this coming Spring.
