While I return time and again to my trusty beret in winter, I like something more glamorous for summer.
The milliner Kokin makes some beautiful shapes for every season (his buckets especially remind me of Audrey’s in Funny Face), and this spring I’m smitten with his Fortissimo Hollywood.
I love a hat that doubles as hair (!), not with faux locks dangling, silly, but a hat with a generous, well—enormous—brim that gently cascades down one’s back like les cheveux.
This hat frames the face, the shoulders, beautifully. You could even give it an insouciant toss—just like your hair.
It’s available on Vivre, an online and paper catalogue that’s the source of many an hour lost in dreams.
