Bill Cunningham, The Return of Netted Hats

14 Oct

What goes around comes around, my life in fashion is repeating.  The ubiquitous knit cap has been a hipster staple for a while, my neighborhood is full of them. Personally I never thought them attractive. still another anti-fashion statement made by those who could not afford something nicer. Im not being negative, I was once in the same Thrift store boat. I am just jaded, I recall netting as the most glamorous accessory of all.

I’m glad to report that  creativity is alive and well among a younger generation. The twenty something’s have discovered netting. Face net was once the ultimate chic among  the likes of Marlene Dietrich, Rosalind Russell, Rita Hayworth even Lucille Ball. and other Hollywood divas. As they say ” Everything old is new again”

Marlene wore net like no other

Lucy shares my opinion, of netting on knit caps, not the same level of glamour.
