With these ads from the Temperley London Spring 2011 collection, you can see a clear definition of this season’s must-have accessory—a wide-brimmed hat. Netherlands-born model Melissa Tammerijn dons a wide-brimmed hat in many of the looks. Temperley London is known for its classic high-end designs and this season is no exception. Beautiful taupes, creams, browns and blacks complement each other nicely and make the pairing of various tones seem effortless.
The semi-structured nature of Tammerijn’s wide-brimmed hat complements the flowing silhouettes, which are shaped using a variety of belts and form-fitting waistlines. The spring 2011 collection also features an identical cream wide-brimmed hat in a few of the looks, to give viewers a more daytime alternative to the jet-black hat. I think that Tammerijn was a great choice for Temperley London’s spring 2011 advertisements, as the clothes just seem to drape across her tall, elegant figure gracefully.
Whether or not we can afford to go out and purchase any of the looks from this collection, what we can take from Temperley London’s ad campaign is that a wide-brimmed hat in a neutral cream or black is a fashion forward accessory to invest in this season!
The conclusion could be made that perhaps the enormous focus on the upcoming Royal nuptials of Prince William & Kate Middleton over the past few months could have influenced Temperley London’s focus on a classic wide-brimmed hat in its collection. Middleton regularly favors classic hats as her go-to accessory during any season. With something as classic as a wide-brimmed black hat, you’re sure to be able to find one that fits in with any budget!
