Sometimes it's a color, sometimes it's a pattern or a shoe, and sometimes, like this week, it's headgear. Whatever the focus, Bill Cunningham's regular "On the Street" photo essay in The New York Times Style section is always a crowd-pleaser. Above, a celebration of the fedora. He writes, deliciously, "The straw fedora, with its rakish snap brim, is the summer status symbol."
* Here's a great article on Cunningham by Guy Trebay in Artforum in 1996.
