Why Coco Chanel’s Favorite Hat Is Back on Top

If Thom Browne has his way, then boaters might replace the floppy sun hat and the festival-girl flower crown as the topper of choice come next spring. It makes sense that the designer, whose roots are in menswear, would be attracted to this ribbon-banded straw, worn by sailors, English school boys, and well-dressed gents the world over.

Coco Chanel is credited with elevating this humble hat to new fashion heights, just as she did jersey fabric. Heightening the impact of Browne’s show further still were Jimmy Paul’s Pippi Longstocking stick-your-finger-in-a-socket braids, over which Stephen Jones’s topless boaters were layered like lifesavers—truly a crowning moment, indeed.

The Updo That Goes from Black Tie to Brunch: One Vogue Editor Test-Drives Chanel’s Runway Hair

chanel-chignon

 

When it comes to black-tie events, we “wash and go” types are acutely aware of the problems poised by the need for an evening coiffure. I tend toward an I-hope-intentionally-looking rumpled, long, easy mane, or coil the whole mess into a tight knot that I like to imagine passes for strict and sophisticated (I am of the age where I have come to realize that my face benefits from my hair being out of its way). This is who I am! I think, I do not require a hair dryer! Or a pin! Or even a brush, for that matter; any sort of measure beyond the odd elastic! And then, of course, I saw the Chanel fall 2015 collection last month in Paris.

The messy chignons on the runway (hat tip to backstage whiz Sam McKnight) were sultry, they were subtle, they were unfussy and up; it was enough to make me rethink my entire approach to life, or at least my approach to event dressing. My desire to attempt it was immediate—and thank heaven for the very patient New York–based hairstylist Cameron Rains, who worked with McKnight backstage at said Chanel show and instantly got what I was after when he arrived at my Tribeca apartment to help me get ready for Friday night’s Save Venice gala.

“It’s super easy and very sexy,” he said, brushing and spraying (Bumble and Bumble, natch) and pinning my strands into a perfectly imperfect modern coif. The black ribbon he fixed around the nape of my neck as a makeshift headband was the insouciant icing on the cake (though Rains noted it renders a much more graphic effect on a blonde; rejoice, ye towheads). Even better? The look seamlessly went from topping a new Michael Kors frock for black tie uptown that night to a vintage denim-clad downtown brunch (next-day hair: very rock ’n’ roll) the following morning in the blink of an eye. Just sleep on it, fix your ribbon, and go.

From Beyoncé and Pharrell to Cara and Kendall, the Best Instagrams from Chanel’s Paris-Salzburg Show in New York

Pharrell

No, your eyes are not deceiving you—that Chanel show that toured the Armory tonight was a reprisal of the house’s Metiers d’Arts collection, which bowed in Austria late last year. But who cares if we’ve already seen the clothes? We’re looking at the celebrities who were out in full dirndl- and lederhosen-loving force. From Cara Delevingne and Kendall Jenner to Beyoncé and Pharrell, here are the best Instagrams from tonight’s event—it’s even better than a front row seat.
