If the Hat Fits
Do you love hats? Do you long for something smarter than caps and bucket hats? Hats have long been indicators of style as well as function.
This vintage hat looks great with an orange linen shift.
Headgear may also help to place occupations, military regiments or levels of class. You would immediately pigeon hole a man in a top hat very differently to a man in a cloth cap. In some cultures headwear indicates marital status or religious affiliation.
Caboolture Regional Art Gallery is presenting an exhibition named head.wear through a curated collection of objects drawn from historical collections and private collectors.
The exhibition features such delights as a Victorian era smoking cap, an evening cloche from the 1920s, a psychedelic print turban from the 1960s, a Victorian widow's cap and a Pakistani groom's sehra.
It sounds fascinating. I can't wait to see it ...and ...I think I'll wear a hat.
