Rather than more closely align themselves with the fashion trends endemic to Europe’s fashion capital, P.A.M.’s move to Paris seems like little more than another stop on their psychedelic odyssey. Perks and Mini is named after founders’ Micha Hollenbach and Shauna Toohey monikers as graffiti artists, and judging from this season’s collection, entitled “Under_Ground,” they have not lost their eye for subcultural agitation.
The Boonie Hat in Black takes a piece of headwear originally created for military use and adjusts it for its own purposes, a practice familiar to many subcultures since the mid-20th-century. This wide brim hat features the utility loops for which the boonie hat shape design is known, an adjustable drawcord with toggle puller, contrast stitching on the brim, metal ventilation eyelets, and, in opposition to the shape’s military origins, a silvertone flower motif attached to one of the loops.
Made from 65% cotton, 35% nylon, 5% spandex.
