Kangol Bucket Hat
MoMA Exclusive: Bucket hats have existed since the 1900s, as utilitarian headgear, but it wasn’t until the 1970s that the style became a pop-culture icon. Introduced by Kangol, a hat brand founded in 1938, this style of the bucket hat—the Bermuda Casual—was quickly adopted by New York City’s burgeoning hip-hop scene in the 1980s and today it remains a pop-culture classic. This special edition of the iconic bucket hat features the MoMA logo. The MoMA Kangol Bucket Hat is made from 45% modacrylic, 40% acrylic and 15% nylon. A Kangol hat was featured in MoMA’s 2017 exhibition Items: Is Fashion Modern?
