Chapeau! | Hats around the world

I love this fantastic accessorise. In a few museums I saw different hats. In Ratingen (GER) is actually the special exhibition “Chapeau! 150 years stories and history of hats”. The exhibition is presented by LVR-Industry Museum at a textile factory.

Till 1960 hats belonged to our every day wardrobe. It was indecent to leave your house without headgear. Your hat had to match every other accessorise like shoes, scarfs, bags and to your dress you wore.

My black hat by Calvin Klein is my alltime favorite. But when I visited the museum of ethnology I was confused. The mask of Papua-Neuguinea is a represenstation of an european. Oh, yeah. I am an european. We look definitly similar. I just miss the beard in my face.

If you would like to see more hats, you should visit the new museum “Deutsches Hutmuseum Lindenberg” (German Hatmuseum Lindenberg). See the history of the last 300 years of hats and check out which hat is the best one for you!
