During the recent 56th Annual GRAMMY Awards mayhem, Pharrell Williams choice of headwear stood out as a trending topic on social media platforms. It turns out, however, that the hat has an intricate design story that dates back to some of the most noted moments in hip-hop, as well as the fashion it fuelled. The hat’s bold silhouette can be traced back to Vivienne Westwood‘s design from the 1980s, when it first appeared in Malcom McLaren’s “Buffalo Girls” music video. Dubbed anything from the “Buffalo Hat,” to the “Mountain Hat” or “Jelly Mould Hat” by Westwood herself, Pharrell admits that it would have been “real stylin’” if he had an original piece from ’80s. Head here to read more on the hat’s provenance.
