Poll Rag: Straw hat?


Coachella music festival dates and line up have just been released and seems like its going to be a perfect festival of music, Art and culture. Usually, I’m not the “thousands of -hot-sweaty- scenster-crammed- in- a- hot- desert” kind of guy but this year the line up includes one of my favorites Antony and the Johnsons. Since the news of his presence at the polo field my mind frame went from Coachella yuck! to Coachella ok. I figure, one day might be tolerable, with plenty of water and few pills I can make it through the day. A good spring day in the sun might actually be enjoyable,lets pray he goes on early.

Anyways, on to the subject in hand….

Of course with the thought of me going to the desert, I’m left to think about what to wear, I know its a couple of months away, But I like to plan early, Is that so wrong? I soon started putting these spring inspired outfits in my head that will make me feel comfortable in the smoldering heat.

The few years I’ve been, I’ve seen people in ridiculous outfits for the weather in locations. Sweater,blazers, black hoodies and pants in 100+ degree weather. Lets just say they put fashion first before anything. Through the course of the day, as I striped down to only my shorts and sandals, I saw a few of those fashion fauxpaws in the emergency tents, enough said. I know I’m not that stupid enough to make mistakes like those who needed to cool down and should have dressed down.

So, With that in mind, this is where the inspiration comes into play. Whats your take on a Straw hat for Coachella, Should I or Shouldn’t I?

The inspiration came from three Places:

First, Steve, from the great Style Salvage blog, posted an article a while back about Spring must have in his book. Lanvin s/s 09 is his inspiration, especially Lanvins straw hats.

Second, I was browsing through some sites to bring you some new products and such when I came across the Lanvin straw hats being sold on Browns fashion site .


I thought about it for a while and figured that I just might take up Steve’s lead and follow in his footsteps,minus the bows(sorry Steve, I cant do them on my hat).

Thirdly, today, I was flipping through December issue of L’uomo Vogue and came across the picture above of Jamie Belle wearing a straw hat. This vintage inspire look got the creative juices flowing and was the Straw that broke the camels back(Pun intended) in terms of my straw hat dilemma?

The whole “I want a straw hat” thing might be over by tomorrow, but who knows, I might really plan an outfit around the this straw hat. I know I shouldn’t be worried about how I look at this festival and its a long winded story about a straw hat, But I just want to see what my fellow readers think about this trend. Plus, I might need some shade from the heat.

To straw or not to Straw? that is the question!
