It finally *feels* like summer — the season of sun dresses and straw hats. But one French designer is taking this classic beach look a step further by blending the two summer staples into one.

Simon Porte Jacquemus unveiled the design this week: a dress made entirely of straw hats.

The design, consisting of eights woven hats sewn together, is 100 per cent straw and has no lining.

So while it might sound a little itchy and a little unconventional, this “dress” is unquestionably one-of-a-kind. It’s why Jacquemus is asking a cool £2,295 of those who’d like to shop the SSENSE exclusive.
