Rave culture is back! Between tie-dye, Lycra cycling shorts and now bucket hats, you'd be forgiven for thinking you'd stepped into a time machine. Bucket hats, never usually synonymous with chic headgear, have had a revamp.

At Anna Sui, the designer opted to play on texture, as she always does, with embroidered, velvet and satin bucket hats. Etro and Phillip Lim dabbled in retro floral-printed numbers, while at Sonya Rykiel it was an austere and drooping black style worn by moody models.

One of the most surprising versions was seen at Dolce & Gabbana, where the duo opted to showcase a blinged-out gold bucket hat. Surprisingly, it never seemed to make it into stores.

Speaking of stores, it was Ganni's leopard-print, khaki and tie-dye offerings that seemed to sell like hot cakes. Check it out, most likely on an Instagram feed near you.

Winne Harlow

There’s no doubt that model Winnie Harlow is an otherworldly beauty, and here she proves she can pull off glam couture looks that appear destined for another galaxy. The Canadian model, who is a spokesperson for the skin condition vitiligo, stunned in sequins at the Fendi Couture show in Rome.

Blade Runner
 

Reading GQ recently, one of its "essential commandments" for grooming struck me: change out your razor cartridge every six shaves. While hygiene is at the forefront of every man's mind when it comes to shaving, it's probably good to circulate this number as a guideline to adhere to... instead of guessing when is the right time to swap out a blade. Changing often ensures a sharp, close shave and limits the risk of razor burn and ingrown hairs.

Top Tip

Bucket hats aren't just for festival-goers. Pair yours with a loose tee and denim. Or go the nostalgic route - a bucket hat will always look good with a 1990s-style dress and Dr Martens.
