Object Of Desire: Miu Miu Straw Boater

Well, we survived #snowmageddon and #TheBeastFromTheEast, and it looks like Spring might finally be making a tentative showing on the horizon. In the hope of sunnier (and warmer) days to come, and with Easter just a few weeks away, we’re thinking hats, more specifically Easter bonnets – but not as you know them.

Forget the glue-gunned fluffy bunnies and polyester blossoms, straw boater hats were the style set’s topper of choice last summer, and they’re not going away. We think Easter is the perfect time to start wearing yours, and Miu Miu‘s, with its red grosgrain ribbon with jaunty white spots, is the most stylish take on a modern Easter bonnet anywhere.

Miu Miu straw boater hat, £225. Available now at Miu Miu, 185 Sloane St, SW1X 9NW.
