fashion film: kangol

hats off to 75 years!

by rebecca willa davis

We all have our Kangol memories.

Mine? The perfect cream beret I found at a Vermont vintage store--it's definitely a few decades old and makes me look like a French film spy.

And I know I'm not alone; to celebrate their 75th anniversary, the accessories brand gathered stylish New Yorkers to reminisce about why the love the brand--and why they're still wearing it, nearly a century after it first launched.

It might help you think of your own Kangol moments--or inspire you to pick one up (I'm eyeing that fuzzy bucket hat) and create a few new memories.
