The humble cap has made its resurgence the past year, and you can thank normcore for that . We’re not complaining though, because everyone can appreciate a stylish accessory that also serves as a shield from the infernal sun.

Baseball caps in particular have withstood the trying test of time in the fashion world. Wiz Khalifa and Virgil Abloh of Off-White have done their part in keeping the trend alive. Now, fashion has melded two of its perennial favourites into one. Yes, denim caps are now a thing.

If you disagree, just take a cue from Supreme’s latest collaboration with Louis Vuitton. The iconic camp cap is now given a high fashion makeover with its monogrammed prints and a luxurious leather patch. For spring, A Bathing Ape has also embroidered its iconic Ape Head onto its denim caps.

Here are 5 options to help inject street cred into just about any look in your wardrobe this summer.

1
Supreme x Louis Vuitton Denim camp cap

In what we anticipate to be the cap with the highest reselling bid on eBay this season, the Supreme x Louis Vuitton denim camp cap sees the street mogul’s famous headwear silhouette take on the equally recognisable monogram pattern. The Supreme box logo comes sewn on a leather patch instead of the usual fabric ones (because Louis Vuitton). You’ll need serious connections to get one of these.

Blue Blue Japan Magnolia Baseball cap

Patiently dyed using time-honoured Japanese techniques, Blue Blue Japan’s natural indigo has gained a cult following for its distinctive patina. The denim specialist has applied this technique to its baseball cap, giving it a tonal floral pattern that is understatedly cool, with an adjustable leather strap at the back to keep the look smart.

AMI light denim cap

The six panel cap gets a minimalist but suitably cool makeover thanks to quality stonewashed denim by Parisian label AMI. Metal eyelets on the crown and a tri-coloured embroidered logo patch give subtle detail to the otherwise simple and extremely versatile cap.
