I’ve always had a big respect for hat wearers, even though I never actually wear one myself. From Jackie Kennedy’s neat little pillboxes to Kate Moss’s trilbies, they’ve always commanded attention.

These days, Lady Gaga won’t be seen without one. For me, on the other hand, I always feel they are a bit too flashy. Perhaps I just haven’t found the right one… yet.
