Formerly popularized by hip-hop artists in the ‘80s and ‘90s (re: Run-DMC and LL Cool J in Kangols and matching Adidas tracksuits), bucket hats fell out of fashion for almost two decades.

That is, until Chanel reintroduced them on its SS18 runway and every other house began to throw its own – bucket – hat into the ring. With iterations in materials, colors, textures, and patterns, bucket hats are no longer only synonymous with athleisure or rainy, spring days – their original intention for fishermen circa the 1900s. From Louis Vuitton’s casual terrycloth to Dior’s chic netted-veil and Gucci’s woven raffia to Prada’s chevron wool, they are now suitable for every occasion and season.
