With its maritime references and its nostalgic appeal, this black Nautique Cap from Hélas arrives as a new-season staple from the Parisian brand’s latest SS20 release. Styled with a low profile innovatively formatted from a sleek 6-panel construction, this stitch-stacked curve peak cap is well-suited to any sporting adventure, with its colour-matched embroidered ventilation eyelets and its clip-lock rear closure helping to supply a more rigid and reliable fitting through any active lifestyle. A lemon-yellow underbrim helps deliver a more throwback sense of colour, whilst the swoop-back pastel purple side panels actively pay homage to classic maritime flags and signals. Sleek, white-stitch ‘Hélas’ branding can be seen arching over the rear opening, with bold-trim branding across the crown and five miniature nautical flags helping to sign off this design with its own sense of sea-faring creativity.
Showcasing a distinctly vintage aesthetic for their latest release, Hélas welcome a visionary ‘trip down memory lane’ vibe into the mix, whilst their love for 80s sportswear and retro pastel colours doesn’t appear to be lacking. Launched in 2011 by Lucas Puig, Stephen Khou and Clement Brunel, the fun-loving and ever-energised crew have since welcomed a number of creative edits to their name, whilst both their court-roots and anime-inspired capsule collections with adidas Skateboarding has actively cemented them with a firm seat at the contemporary skatewear table.
