The bucket hat- an Instagram favourite. This nostalgic accessory has worked its way back up, resurging from the urban streets to a fashion essential. Loved within the category of ‘Instagrammers’ and influencers, this vintage hat is dubbed a street style and fashion week favourite.
Originally worn by fishermen and farmers to protect from the elements, a bucket hat is a 1900s classic that has been revived and revamped with a modern twist. Seemingly one that comes and goes, the bucket hat takes the 90s kids back to childhood nostalgia. Once sported on the likes of LL Cool J, the times have changed and the accessory is now popular among the likes of Rihanna, Bella Hadid and Oasis frontman, Liam Gallagher.
Brands on board with the bucket hat craze include Versace Jeans Couture, Moose Knuckles, Polo Ralph Lauren, Kenzo, Paul Smith and of course, Pretty Green– the brainchild of Liam Gallagher. Whether it’s festival culture or the world of social media, a bucket hat is a need, from fur to fabric.
