Paris Fashion Week is almost over and we want to show you the corresponding piece of the day: CANOTIER – one of the most famous elements of French style and the favorite accessory of Coco Chanel.
Last few seasons we’ve seen lots of similar hats at fashion shows, but despite that fact, we can’t tell that fashionistas are tired of this trend. All because of naughty shape – flat and hard-angle top of this model doesn’t suit everybody that’s why this sophisticated piece works only for the lucky ones.
One of the first to bring canotier back to high fashion was Celine brand. In F/W-2013 collection designers mixed classic straw variant of a hat with heavy tweed pea-jackets and coats, in 2016 everything is opposite – it is trendy to wear canotier of felt fabric with light dresses and demiseason trenches.
Excellent example of such canotier are the items of young Ukrainian TM Cover №1.
To wear it with true Parisian charm, take your time to look through vintage photos of French fashion classics – Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent.
