Fashion - June 2011 Image

You can leave your hat on

By Nicola St John

Forget about Kate Middleton’s dress and sparkly tiara.

The prize for the most memorable fashion item from the Royal Wedding went to Princess Beatrice’s hat. Dubbed the “toilet seat” or “giant pretzel” it went on to sell at a charity auction for more than $123,000.

But there is more to head-pieces than royals and racing this season.  The runways’ recent profusion of porkpies and fedoras, for both men and women is a little Humphrey Bogart, a little Dick Tracy and a little Shane Scanlan. A fedora instantly adds a touch of sophistication and androgynous fun to work-wear and plain old jeans and T-shirts.

Australia’s own iconic Akubra has teamed up with leading designers Bec and Bridge, matching classic tailoring with a contemporary twist. The 2011 collection is much less bushman – rather creating new silhouettes with a feminine edge.

The traditionalist Akubra brings a new appreciation for hand craftsmanship to contemporary fashion design, with the collaboration fusing a hint of the past with pure modernity.

“They epitomise sensuality, success and nonchalant sex appeal that is the key to our brand,” say designers Bridget Yorston and Becky Cooper.

The Bianca Adventurer available in beautiful pastels and is perfect for both the harsh conditions of the Australian climate, the VIP room or a royal occasion.
