Already making a statement in SS14 collections from the likes of Craig Green, APC and Margaret Howell, the bucket hat is back.
The 360 degree floppy brim has made a significant comeback with a variety of colourways and prints, making it easy to integrate the hat; more synonymous with the Hip-Hop style scene, with alternate looks such as the botanical splash over at Rag & Bone, or the smart-cool look of Margaret Howell.
Originally styled and established with an urban edge by the likes of RUN DMC and LL Cool J; who wore the must have with Adidas tracksuits and big gold accessories, the 2013 update offers similar looks as seen back in the 80’s as well as contemporary revamps.
Some of our favourite bucket hats we’ve spotted come from New Zealand based brand I Love Ugly who created a SS13 bucket hat collection in eight different colourways and prints. Rip N Dip also have a collection of in your face buckets with loud prints and colours. Pageant SS13 also has their own two tone take on the trend.
