What is a Helmet Hat
A helmet hat is a cap closely fitting the head and covering the ears. Sometimes they have visors that project in front, like those on baseball caps or police caps. In the 1960s, helmets shaped like a London Bobby’s helmet, with a chin strap and sometimes with a visor were popular.
Yves Saint Laurent’s Mondrian-inspired helmet, introduced in 1965, was iconic of the mod style. It had squares and rectangles of bright colors, outlined in black stripes, like the paintings that Mondrian made famous.
In 1965, Pierre Cardin designed a Cosmos collection, including a helmet that resembled a dome-shaped felt astronaut’s helmet with a hole for the face. The Metropolitan Museum has a wool helmet by Simone Ourtan, circa 1964, in its collection. From Hatatorium: An Essential Guide for Hat Collectors, 2nd Edition
