We have finally made it through the winter, the heavy coats are coming off and the short sleeves are coming back on. That also means good-bye beanies and hello sun-hats! This years bi-annual fashion show has showcased more hats that range from the classic baseball to avant-garde forms.
As a brand specializing in such a favored accessory, we are naturally one step ahead of the crowd in following this seasons favorite looks. Below are some of the top three trending hat categories for this Spring/Summer 2022 all from the Marzi collection.
Breton & Baseballs
Something casual and sporty is always a must in the top trends: The breton and baseball hats will forever always be a classic-modern item such as a trench coat. We kept it light (weight) by utlizing fabrics such as linen and even straw that creates new looks even with classic forms.
A simple touch goes a l o n g way. The addition of the long straps/ribbons gives a bit more color and functionality to each hat as well as a different look depending on the presentation of the ribbons. Leaving them out loosely gives a casual care-free look, while creating a bow tie under the chin will give more of a feminine look. A simple low knot gives a more sporty look. Needless to say, there are a lot of looks in this one style.
Large turn ups and shapes
Another large trends; large hats! Especially exaggerated pieces with a big ‘turn up’ in the front of the hat. The creations are large but light weight like gigantic feathers. The curves and turn-ups on the hats are done with a technique to create a natural flow in the structure to seem like a balanced wave. In return, we believe that these looks can be daringly paired with almost any spring/summer look. Its all about the attitude and the execution.
