Giant Bucket Hats: in fashion from Belle Époque to 2020

Giant Bucket Hats: in fashion from Belle Époque to 2020

Cappelli enormi, stravaganti, che agli albori dello scorso secolo facevano apparire le donne simili a colorati funghi e fiori eleganti. Questa tipologia di copricapo, dalla forma a grande casco rovesciato, ha ripreso linfa nel corso del ‘900 per tornare in auge durante questi ultimi anni. Pressoché disattesa la proposta di Louis Vuitton nella sua fall winter del 2012, il “Bucket Hat” è stato rielaborato da Marc Jacobs e Coach 1941 nella fw del 2017, per riapparire pressoché identico nella collezione Nina Ricci e Dior dell’autunno inverno 2019 – 2020. Ecco una mia accurata selezione per voi.

Giant, extravagant hats, which at the dawn of the last century made women look like colorful mushrooms and elegant flowers. This type of headgear, with a large inverted bucket shape, has taken on new life during the 1900s to come back into vogue during these last few years. Louis Vuitton’s proposal in his 2012 fall winter was almost completely dismissed, the “Bucket Hat” was reworked by Marc Jacobs and Coach 1941 in the fw of 2017, to reappear almost identical in the Nina Ricci and Dior collection of autumn winter 2019 – 2020 Here is an accurate selection I made for you.

Barbara La Marr: Heroin & Death in Old Hollywood

Barbara La Marr, young actress addicted to morphine and heroin

«Il via alla moda dell’autodistruzione 
era stato dato qualche anno prima
da Barbara La Marr, 
attrice soprannominata “la troppo bella”, 
consegnata alla storia per esser stata 
la prima morta di overdose da eroina: era il 1926.

Barbara conobbe tutti i tipi di droga, 
conservava la cocaina in un prezioso cofanetto in oro.

Volto struggente, fascino maledetto e distruttivo 
e occhi allucinati furono il dettaglio 
che caratterizzò quella perduta bellezza.»

“IL MACABRO E IL GROTTESCO NELLA MODA E NEL COSTUME”

«The fashionable way of self-destruction had been given a few years earlier, however, by Barbara La Marr, an actress nicknamed “the girl who was too beautiful”, consigned to history for having been the first death of a heroin overdose: it was 1926.

Barbara knew everyone the types of drugs, he kept cocaine in a precious gold casket.

A poignant face, damned and destructive charm and hallucinated eyes were the details that characterized that lost beauty.»

Ready to Wear from Thierry Mugler ss 1992.

If the concept of “Ready to Wear” approaches “Ready Made”, to the surreal, to the world of art in its many facets. Thierry Mugler spring summer 1992. Supermodels Niki Taylor, Yasmeen Ghauri and Naomi Campbell. The three amazing and different types of beauties of the supermodels create a unique aesthetic picture of its kind. Unrepeatable today. Iconic moments for a style that ironizes on the past, on the present and on the future…on fashion, on the wearability of a dress, on its opulent aesthetics.

An Actress, a Prince, a car crash

«Nell’estate del 1931 il principe più bello d’Europa, Umberto II di Savoia, fu oggetto di scandalose cronache che raccontavano di un presunto idillio tra il giovane, che si era sposato solo diciotto mesi prima, e la bellissima attrice hollywoodiana Jeanette MacDonald, giunta in Riviera per una vacanza. Il giorno in cui si sarebbe dovuta separare da Umberto, lei era seduta in macchina e lui era alla guida, l’automobile slittò sull’asfalto bagnato facendo sbalzare fuori dall’abitacolo i due. Il volto dell’attrice ne rimase sfigurato, per ricucirle il cuoio capelluto i chirurghi dovettero raderle la bionda chioma. Disperata Jeanette si fece aiutare dal banchiere Maurice Garfunkel che la affidò ai migliori specialisti di New York. La diva sfigurata fu restituita prontamente a Hollywood grazie a un abile intervento di chirurgia plastica.»

«In the summer of 1931 the most beautiful prince of Europe, Umberto II of Savoy, was the object of scandalous chronicles that told of an alleged idyll between the young man, who had married only eighteen months before, and the beautiful Hollywood actress Jeanette MacDonald, come to the Riviera for holydays. The day she was supposed to leave Umberto, she was sitting in the car and he was driving, the car skidded on the wet asphalt, knocking the two out of the cockpit. The actress’s face was disfigured, and to round her scalp the surgeons had to shave her blonde hair. Desperate, Jeanette was helped by the banker Maurice Garfunkel who entrusted her to the best specialists in New York. The disfigured diva was promptly returned to Hollywood thanks to a skilful plastic surgery.»

Back in fashion: 1916 and New Look

La moda, si sa, è fatta di eterni ritorni in fatto di stile, gusti, tendenze. E non è questo un fenomeno del tutto contemporaneo, anzi, affonda le proprie origini nella genesi della novità vestimentaria, che a dispetto del vocabolo, di nuovo spesso non ha nulla. Si confronti in proposito lo strano caso che riguarda la regina di Francia Maria Antonietta, discusso nel mio libro “Il Macabro e il Grottesco nella Moda e nel Costume“. Oggi vi presento la curiosa rielaborazione New Look di una tendenza apparsa nel 1916. Abiti più corti dei precedenti, dai volumi sorprendentemente innovativi, morbidi, con gonne ampie e arricciate sostenute da sottovesti a balze. Colori, fantasie, capricci neo barocchi si spostano così dal ’16 al ’47 per durare questa volta più a lungo. La mia selezione fotografica per voi.

Fashion, as we know, is made up of eternal returns in terms of style, tastes and trends. And this is not a completely contemporary phenomenon, indeed, it has its origins in the genesis of the modern dress, which despite the word, often has nothing of modern. Compare in this regard the strange case concerning the queen of France Marie Antoinette, discussed in my book “The Macabre and the Grotesque in Fashion and Costume“. Today I present to you all the curious New Look reworking of a trend that appeared in 1916. Shorter dresses than the previous ones, with surprisingly innovative volumes, soft, with wide and gathered skirts supported by flounced petticoats. Colors, fantasies, new-baroque trends move from ’16 to ’47 to last this time longer. My photo selection for you.
