Kate Middleton revived the headdress that Anne Boleyn put in fashion

The royal christening of Prince Louis of Cambridge was held on Monday. Hundreds of people gathered outside the church of St. Mary Magdalene to be part of this important event of British royals.

For its part, Kate Middleton dazzled with a look worthy of a future queen. The Duchess wore a tailored white dress by designer Alexander McQueen, who designed her acclaimed wedding dress in 2011 and the look she also wore at the baptisms of Charlotte and George.

But what caught our attention was the accessory in his head designed by Jane Taylor. The piece reminded us of the classic French headdress implemented by Anne Boleyn in the English court during the sixteenth century.




Anne Boleyn had been brought up in the French court so when she arrived in England (her home country) she imported the fashion gala, which became popular exponentially.

The French hood is a headdress similar to the Russian kokoshnik, however they are not related. It is a kind of headband with a lot of volume which is placed on the front of the head but always leaving hair exposed at the front.



On this occasion, the duchess's headdress had flowers on the side, something unusual for this type of accessory. However, this could be a renovation of the old ornament.


What is clear to us is that, like Anne Boleyn in her time, Kate Middleton is an English fashion guru and we will undoubtedly be seeing this French headdress more often in the official events of royalty.

Proposals by Junya Watanabe




Junya Watanabe follows the trend of the previous collections and pays tribute to the classic garments of the traditional male wardrobe, reinterpreting codes, colors and textures. The house declares war on the bag and proposes a wide variety of fanny packs and backpacks inspired by those worn by the military. The focus of attention is on the vests of pockets, cargo vests, very similar to those worn by paratroopers.

Yamamoto deconstructs his clothes in a romantic collection

Yohji Yamamoto plays to deconstruct the garments without leaving the dictates of the traditional masculine tailoring, modernizing and updating classic garments, like the jacket or the vest. A certain romantic air goes through the whole proposal and plays with the details, like the decorative zippers, and puts the accent on the contrasts of textures and colors. The duo of black and fuchsia is fascinating.




The lines are fluid, the silhouettes are generous and the patterns are very striking. Yamamoto decorates her clothes with women in a sensual attitude, texts in Japanese, flowers and a bold leopard skin.

Dries Van Noten pays homage to Verner Panton

The bright colors and seventies motifs of Danish designer and architect Verner Panton are the starting point of the Dries Van Noten collection that has been associated with the artist's family who died in 1998. Some garments seem to travel from the past, especially that are stamped with those undulating motifs, almost hypnotic, that seem to meander through the fabric. Motifs that decorate oversize coats, retro suits, T-shirts and even swimsuits. A nod to the iconic Danish textiles and its famous Panton chair.

La bandera de tejidos sorprende por su prestancia y riqueza de matices. El belga utiliza mucho el nylon técnico de efecto lacado y lo tiñe de potentes negros, azules, verdes y arenas. La mezcla de texturas en brillo y mate resulta fascinante.

De nuevo un trabajo excelente, un equilibro casi perfecto entre la creatividad y lo comercial. Dris Van Noten ha sido además noticia porque recientemente ha vendido la mayor parte de su firma, creada en 1986, al grupo español Puig que controla además etiquetas como Carolina Herrera, Paco Rabanne, Nina Ricci y Jean Paul Gaultier, entre otras.
