This iconic cap — covered in Burberry’s signature checked pattern — is all the rage right now. After its release, the checked cap has been seen on various celebrities such as Rihanna and Rita Ora. It’s constructed with panelled vintage checked print cotton, top stitched and made with adjustable leather straps — truly a style investment.
While looking through the archives, Creative director of Gucci, Alessando Michele found a print from the 80s — a bootleg version of the house’s logo. The logo was used and shortly it became a key feature in most of the looks in its collection. This baseball cap showcases the logo printed on linen canvas and comes with an adjustable leather strap.
This Prada patched cap is made with a textural, canvas-like cotton material which exudes a relaxed resort feel. The label’s iconic logo is also featured as a patch with raw distressed edges on the center. We recommend pairing this with outfits that are made with lightweight looks such as a linen shirt, a crisp blouse or even denim.
