While newsboy caps were a staple for many celebrities way back in the ’00s, the trend seems to be returning with full force in 2021. Halle Berry showed a picture of her wearing the cap with nothing but a t-shirt on and a cup of tee in her hand. Taylor Swift also matched her printed coat to a purple newsboy cap, creating a laid-back look.

A Neutral Color Newsboy Cap Can Go With Everything

While such combinations prevent the cap from feeling too over-the-top, this accessory can also provide extravagance when that is the desired effect. It can also be used with jeans or to add flair to an otherwise mundane or predictable outfit. Additionally, newsboy cap enthusiasts can choose plaid or polka-dotted hats to turn their white T-shirts into a fashion statement.

This particular style of hats was popular in both North America and Europe in the early 20th century and was mostly worn by boys and adult men. At the time, it was associated with newspaper boys and other working boys, who often wore flat caps. However, this style was not worn strictly by boys. Later on, this style of hats saw a resurgence with celebrities such as Brian Johnson and David Beckham sporting the classic look.

Pyer Moss Presents Debut Couture Collection in Alternative Fashion Show

Alternative fashion designer Kerby-Jean Raymond has recently made a position in history as the first-ever black American fashion designer taking part in a prestigious couture show. Raymond was a guest designer in the Fédération de la Haute Couture et de la Mode, where he presented his debut couture collection under his Pyer Moss label.

The Location

Unlike most of the designers presenting their collections in Paris, Villa Lewardo in Irvington, New York, was the venue of the original show. The location is culturally significant as the estate belongs to none other than Madam C.J. Walker. After earning her fortune with a line of Black hair care products, she was documented by the Guinness Book of World records as the first female self-made millionaire entrepreneur in America. Though dated on July 8, the show had to postpone because of severe weather caused by the recent hurricane named Elsa.

The Show

The show was attended by famous personalities, who gathered again at the same venue even after the date disruption. Among the invitees, there were Hanifa designer Anifa Mvuemba, the 15 Percent Pledge founder and creative director of Brother Vellies Aurora James, actress Kiki Layne and many other famed figures. Writer, singer, prison activist, and former Black Panther chairwoman Elaine Brown opened the show addressing the audience. After the opening address, the ramp walk was started accompanied by a 22GZ live performance along with a live orchestra.

The Collection

The distinctively unique collection by Pyer Moss was unconventionally named ‘WAT U IZ’. Delivering a tribute to Black inventions, the attires were eccentrically designed using 25 surrealist and fashionable interpretations of various items like hot rollers, chessboard, even the refrigerator, on which, the sentence “BUT WHO INVENTED BLACK TRAUMA?” was written with magnetic letters.
