Who doesn’t want to dream of a world far away of sun-drenched South of France at this time of year?? The sea, the sun, the folk tradition, the entire cinematic, sexy, mythology of the South of France is such an inspiration to me thanks to the amazing French designer Jacquemus.
Jacquemus has been taking my breath away for many months now and I cannot get enough of his phenomenal South of France provencal (yet so aristocratic) essence. His latest LA BOMBA collection truly spoke to my love of drama, French summers, and sensual sex appeal of European woman. Simon Porte Jacquemus is a true genius of nostalgic romance, lovely silhouettes, and drama with a capital D. Naturally when his extremely magnificent Le Grand Chapeau Hat was first seen on the SS18 runways I was drooling over it. Sadly it was out of my budget, but truly allowed me to dream bigger and better! I still craved a huge oversized straw hat that only needs a tiny pair of panties and the fresh ocean breeze for completion, so I searched on Amazon for something similar.
To my surprise I found my all time favorite everyday grandddd hat by the San Diego Hat Company that also has SPF 50 to truly protect you face and body! This hat is SO fab and so extra it will shade your face—maybe even your entire body—from the damaging UV rays. Jacquemus’s statement piece may be leading the charge in the GIANT hat game, but it’s not the only player. There are more than enough versions to go around, whether it’s a plain black iteration or one decorated with tassels and ribbon. The most important thing to remember about this summer’s hats is that bigger is better—and more Instagrammable.
Are you as obssessed with large hats????
