Known for its statement bags, elegant separates and drool-worthy couture, I’ll admit that seeing an email titled “Dior Presents The Bucket Hat” took me somewhat by surprise. You know those feelings I was just talking about? It’s safe to say that mine err on the side of strong dislike when it comes to bucket hats, so needless to say I was very intrigued as to how Dior had approached their design.
According to the brand, the hat is a “poetic tribute to Stephen Jones [the brand’s milliner] and to the Teddy Girls, one of the inspirations behind Maria Grazia Chiuri’s F/W19 collection.” The reversible head toppers (which range in price from CAD$870-$1600) come in a mix of patterns, including check and tartan, and some also feature the iconic Dior Oblique canvas. Finished with mini veils and a wide brim, the design is undeniably feminine, imbued with a on-brand sense of elegance.
The piece has already been a street style hit, too, with the likes of Camila Coelho, Romee Strijd and perennial cool-girl Jennifer Lawrence all having been spotted sporting the hat.
