The versatility of hats makes it one of the most trendy and popular accessories for men. Whether you’re wearing a snapback, flat cap, fedora, beanie, or top hat, each hat presents itself differently with the material, texture, colour or style to an outfit.
That is why Bottega Veneta, an world renowned Italian luxury goods house has presented [a while back] at its Spring/Summer 2016 collection a series of crochet hats. The collection focuses on the idea of nature and its natural surroundings, emphasizing its focal point on simplicity. To get back to this core, the fashion house has placed a heavy emphasis on the material wool. Seen through their entire Spring Summer 2016 collection, the message is apparent in the designs and ease of dressing. The fabric is heavily used in their men’s accessories, but also plays a prominent role in the outwear collections.
Looking at the hats, the crochet design [seen below] is most noticeable with its saturated colours of green, blue, red, and grey, and is enhanced with softer and mineral shades in different suede and light quilted pieces.
