Bucket hats are a hit on the S/S17 catwalk and the muddy festival field

On a street style trip to Field Day Festival, in East London’s Victoria Park, the bucket hat was a popular choice for many guys. The rain persisted at the two day event which made the hat an ideal headwear accessory.

The classic shapes remain but styling varied from skater boy to city explorer to nautical sailor.

Captured throughout the latest men’s S/S 17 London catwalks too, the bucket hat offers a practical yet playful silhouette for the summer.


Bold colours and interesting material executions update this classic 90s look. Designs are great for smart and casual styling highlighting versatile looks for guys.



The bucket hat is the perfect festival hat choice for guys! The latest designs are incredibly versatile, so it can be added to a range of looks creating a trans-seasonal headwear accessory for the spring and summer season.
