The hat beat is a tricky one: It seems that no sooner has everyone seemed to agree on a particular shape or style, then it’s on to the next. A season or two back, every boy at the Beatrice had found his way to a porkpie of sorts, a sixties-slick moment fatted, it felt, on Mad Men mania. Then, all of a sudden, they were gone. Giant, slouchy knit caps—snoods, if you will—replaced them, winter, spring, and fall. And now? We notice that two ahead-of-the-curve gentlemen, Hedi Slimane and André Saraiva, were out and about in the last week in similar floppy fedoras. Slimane saw things in black and white at Larry Gagosian’s opening for Andreas Gursky; André rocked a dandyish lilac version at Maison Darré . (Not to belabor the point, he lost it for the Purple party.) That’s two, and three, as they say, makes the trend. Any takers?
