Balenciaga Hat


This hat is weird. I don't think I would wear it. But it might be good in the rain.

this is so dramatic ... i think it would be fun to wear somewhere dramatic, like a costume gala or an art biennial ...

I could have done with a hat like this in the rain today! It has a Sou'westerish feel about it to me. Someone out there will carry it off beautifully though :o)

Yeah I couldn't pull it off, but it is worth the photo!

stephanie - You're right, it could be carried off by the right person at the right occasion!
kendalee - Yes, I had in mind one of those oilcloth thingies worn by serious fishermen - only I forgot the name. It is also a little nun-nish, don't you think? Could be paired nicely with a black habit and huge crucifix.
please sir - I must say I always feel so conspicuous when I wear a hat, I'm not sure why. Maybe because it is not really common to wear one anymore, unless you're out in the sun?

i must confess, i have a hat quite like this in only a bit smaller proportions. and it is definitely difficult to find the right way and day to include it.
