Bucket hats are my favorite head accessories. They offer full 360-degree protection from the sun with its all-throughout brim. And they are generally forgiving after wear—no hat hair whatsoever.
Another reason why I gravitate towards this kind of hat is that my head size (yes, it’s a thing) is on the wider side and bucket hats, especially ones with bigger brims, make it appear smaller. Not to mention, bucket hats can easily be converted into a clutch if it doesn’t come with straps or a sling bag if it does (here’s an actual bucket hat bag complete with a zip, if you don’t believe me).
For the vintage concept’s first release for 2022, Aguillon revisits the utilitarian hat silhouette but, as usual, with a sustainability approach. It’s made using Glorious Dias’ signature style of reworking vintage textiles and deadstock tela, including quilts, embroidery, and weaves.
The bucket hats will drop tonight, Jan. 25, at 8 p.m. on Glorious Dias’ website. While inspired by bad haircuts, the hat with a 2.25-inch-wide rim, 24-inch circumference, and 3.5-inch depth is also constructed with big-head people like me in mind.
These are produced in limited quantities so best to set your alarms.
