There is never a bad season for head and hair accessories. From netted hats to berets and even baseball caps, they have all had their time in fashion and have always been welcomed with open arms. But with this season, there is a new kind of headgear that models are sporting on the runway – Couture swimming caps! The silicon and cloth variations that are used to keep hair away from the face while swimming, is now one of the biggest runway trends.

Think swimming caps with ball gowns, formal dresses and blazers, military outfits, and so much more! It all began with the Autumn/Winter 2018 Valentino couture show where Pierpaolo Piccioli accessorised these caps with detailed gowns. Now, luxury houses like Chanel and Dior have taken the trend forward and are showcasing this headpiece in their Spring/Summer collections this year.

The cap obviously has aquatic origins and was first sported on the red carpet by Amber Heard, for the premier of Aquaman, the perfect occasion to sport a swimming cap in a perfect aquatic shade of emerald green and ivory white. Chanel’s Karl Lagerfeld also designed a similar cap but in a complete white shade with encrusted rhinestones that matched well with the tulle that hung below, for his seasonal bride.

Dior’s models also sported glittery caps with beads and delicate netting that covered the model’s faces to give off a subtle yet mysterious vibe for their circus themed couture show.

The accessory that was once labelled as one of the ugliest accessories, is making it big on runways and how! Clearly, the tides have turned for swimming caps.
