Harpersbazaar.com “Why berets are this season's ultimate revolutionary accessory
It's the ultimate sartorial symbol of 'wokeness'
Chanel has cemented the beret's position as the headwear to be seen in this season. Headwear is big news at the moment – anyone who braves a hat projects an air of confidence. They enhance – or at the very least change an outfit. But what makes the beret so relevant now? Despite its military roots, the beret has long been associated with creatives and hipsters throughout history – they were worn by beatniks, painters, directors and poets. Ernest Hemingway, Pablo Picasso, Edith Piaf, Marlene Dietrich, John Lennon, Yoko Ono and Brigitte Bardot all loved them. It was the hat favoured by intellectual free-thinkers. But then the beret got political; Che Guevara used it in the 60s as a symbol of revolution. It was a look adopted by other activists, most notably by nationalist and socialist party Black Panther Society. With all this in mind, it's no surprise that this French favourite is back. The woke generation are informed, questioning and passionate about change. The beret's history renders it the ultimate symbol of wokeness; of the current popular stream of thought.”
