Easter Bonnets
Get A Modern

by Solana Hawkenson



“In your Easter bonnet, with all the frills upon it, you'll be the grandest lady in the Easter parade,” Irving Berlin sang in his classic 1933 song, “Easter Parade.” Well, times have changed! Though frills and bonnets may no longer be the standard, there are still some pretty cool hats out there, just waiting to be shown off at the Easter parade, or any spring occasion. The trend this past fall was big-rimmed and bold, and it’s carried over to this season, but in a darker palette, as seen at the Spring 2013 Ready-To-Wear collections from Hedi Slimane at Saint Laurent, Alexander McQueen and Victoria Beckham.
Marc Jacobs 2012
At the Fall 2012 Ready-To-Wear shows, Marc Jacobs let out his inner Mad Hatter and sent models down the runway in huge, furry creations with assorted patterns and colors. The Opening Ceremony this year featured  a more wearable wide-brimmed hat in a gorgeous, fall appropriate shade of burgundy.
Saint Laurent hats
This spring, certain designers chose to bypass the predictable spring florals and pastels, and instead showed lines consisting of entirely, or almost entirely, black.  Dark, wide-brimmed hats mysteriously concealed the models’ eyes at Saint Laurent. Creative director Hedi Slimane sent a number of witchy women down the catwalk; his models exuded goth-rock cool in the big-brimmed hats accompanied by 70’s style dresses, biker jackets and sheer tops.
Alexander McQueen
At Alexander McQueen, models wore black, cagelike, headgear that resembled beekeeper hats, to match creative director Sarah Burton’s honeycomb prints on suits and skirts. Again, the overall looks were mostly dark, with the exception of some of some bright, full skirt dresses with exposed corsets. Such a bold look might provoke a few raised eyebrows at Easter Vigil.
Victoria Beckham hatsVictoria Beckham combined, black, wide-brimmed hats with silky, belted rompers and classic black-and-white separates. Her business turns four this year, and the designer’s line has evolved to meet her customer’s demand for a more diverse collection, soon to be revealed on a new website set to launch this spring. Known best for her fitted sheath dresses, Beckham has finally branched out to offer her customers more options (with more breathing room), showing slouchy pants and flirty skirts, in addition to the dresses her fans love.
