.lagerfelds mother and funny hats.

i read an incredibly hilarious m magazine interview with karl lagerfeld as he described his mothers humorous disdain for his choice in hats.

         I love hats, in a way, but when I was a child, I’d wear Tyrolean hats, and my mother — I was something like eight — said to me, ‘You shouldn’t wear hats. You look like an old dyke.’ Do you say such things to children? She was quite funny, no?

the reality of this is in style, we all have our 'hats'. mine came in the form of an eighth grade sweater vest i decided to wear on picture day. id post the picture but i think i hid the last few prints of them. below are a couple of hats from alexander mcqueen's spring collection that i think are quite quirky. great for theatre, a little less practical for every day civilian tasks, such as crossing streets.

xxo, dany
