I’m surprised how much I love these hats by Karl Lagerfeld for Maison Michel. Each named after one of his celebrity model coterie (there’s Kendall, Poppy, Anja, Karlie and Cara), the shapes are classic Maison Michels, with added flourishes by Karl.
The best ones are the ‘Karlie’ peaked caps with a silk lace or chiffon mini-veil (below). What’s genius is that you can wear them multiple ways and you know I’m a sucker for a fashion multi-tasker. Wear the lace over your face as a veil; spin it back to front, legionnaire-style; or tuck the lace underneath so it’s invisible and just wear it as a casual cap. Three for the price of one, not a bad deal…
