They're certainly functional but hats, bonnets and caps can do much more than just provide protection from the sun, the cold or the wind. Depending how you feel they can also serve as a playful fashion accessory, a laid back style element or that certain something for an extravagant outfit. Modern hats and caps are flexible and can be worn as part of just about any look. Feminine woolly hat? Tomboyish cap in baker boy style? Cosy oversized knitted bonnet? Anything goes as long as it feels good, looks good and suits our own personal style.
There's nothing you love more than a flea market! Even as a child you loved the lively atmosphere and the colourful crowds and spent hours browsing the stalls for hidden treasures. Not only does your sister share your passion, she even made it her job. In her capacity as props master she's always on the lookout for bric-a-brac and specialities from every epoch – and you still accompany her regularly on her forays round the flea markets. Flea markets are far and few between in winter, which is why the major outdoor Christmas jumble sale that is held every year in your town is a special highlight. Warmly wrapped up with a rough-knit bonnet of soft mohair on your head, you stroll around the stalls in the freezing cold arm in arm with your sister. Your sister pulls her woven fur-lined bonnet further down over her ears and keeps an eye out for household objects from the 1950s and '60s that she needs for a stage show. You drift along with the crowd stopping here and there to look and haggle, and slowly but surely your sister's large bag fills up with traditional and quirky one-off pieces. You sit near the exit of the market to enjoy a cup of mulled wine and marvel at the day's conquests. As soon as the days start getting warmer you arrange to meet up with your sister for your next trip to the flea market. This time it's a private house clearance sale where she wants to find a few furnishings for the living room of an elderly couple. You set off in a duffel coat and a soft cashmere bonnet and meet your sister at the corner of the street as planned. She's wearing a light trench coat with a dark woollen hat that goes perfectly with it and is in a great mood. Everything to be sold has been placed in the carport and out the front of the house. It soon becomes obvious that your sister isn't going to have much luck here – but that doesn't bother her in the slightest. Together you dig your way through a large cardboard box full of old records and finally make off with a few collector's items, completely satisfied with the day in spite of everything.
It's summertime – the main season for flea markets. The town's major jumble sales are always packed and that means getting up early if you want to grab a real bargain. In a colourful summer dress and a playful straw hat you ring at your sister's flat door at the crack of dawn. She opens the door, her eyes still full of sleep, but completely ready for action, grabs her feminine tweed cap and the obligatory huge bag, then you're off. With a coffee in your hand you stroll around the huge market square that is only filling slowly at first, enjoy the fresh air of this summer morning and then launch into the search for unusual porcelain figures for a film set. You meet up for your next raid on a golden October day – but this time it's completely private. There's a major autumn market being held at a large property outside of the town with arts and crafts items – a good opportunity to enjoy the fantastic weather and perhaps even buy your first few Christmas presents. In a quilted jacket, lace-up booties and knitted beanie you and your sister wander through the stalls and booths, enjoying the atmosphere and the clear fresh air. You're just marvelling at some intricate pieces by a silver smith as your sister calls over to you from another stand waving excitedly with her felt hat. She shows you a selection of beautiful water colours in soft hues that's perfect for your parents' living room. You spend a while making up your minds and finally you opt for three of the little paintings. Happy and contented, with the first Christmas presents of the year under your arm, you move on, always on the lookout for something special.
