Jil Sander veil beanie

Hooked: Jil Sander Veil Beanie

Jil Sander’s spring beanie perfectly sums up designer Raf Simons’ dual aesthetic. Now at Dior, Simons is known for taking inspiration from youth subcultures as well as couture. An example of this, the knit cap made famous in the 90s by grunge-listening, flannel-loving slackers becomes modern and fresh with a couture twist: a net veil.

We can thank master milliner Stephen Jones for the self-contradicting creation, which also comes in white, navy and pale blue. The little beauty is elegant and irreverent all at once.

Around $460 at Jil Sander stores
