For Balenciaga's Fall 2006 Ready To Wear collections mod hats in white and black were featured. The hats seem to be strongly influenced by 1960's women's bowler and equestrian style hats.
The photo above is by Don Ashby and is one of twenty nine photos of hats from the Fall 2006 Balenciaga collection that is on view over at Style.com
Below I have posted a marvelous 1960's mod wool hat and a pattern featuring fun 1960's hats that you can make.
