Unsolved Mysteries: Helene Berman Knitted Veil Bobble Beanie

Helene-Berman-Knitted-Veil-OK, we’re lost: we’re big fans of Helene Berman’s wonderful collection of hats, but we’ve been racking our brains (doesn’t take us long, to be fair) and we just can’t work out why you’d need a veil on your beanie. All we can come up with is a particularly freezing funeral or a very formal fireworks display/other outdoor event that leaves you out in the cold for hours.

If you can enlighten us on the use of this object, we’d greatly appreciate it.

Helene Berman Knitted Veil Bobble Beanie, £30

    It’s clearly targeted at Goths who like to ski.

    I actually think it’s really cute, and would consider wearing it in winter.

    Veil hats are so pretty. Why is it that the first new veiled hat I’ve seen in a long, long time is a SKI CAP? I don’t know either.

    I actually kind of like it (fashion doesn’t always have to make sense!)
    but I can’t imagine when I would wear it, or if I would really wear it. I like it all the same though!

    Formal hats annoy me, so this is a nice alternative if I found myself having to wear one in winter!
