LADIES’ PLASTIC RAINHATS ‘God, this weather is so pissy it's driving me mad,” I happened to mention to a friend the other day. 'No no. you're wrong, this is right: the weather is only interesting when it is in transit. in a state of change. Do you get me?'. she said. I got her all right. the way I got the clap when l was old enough to know better. It seems that for some people rain is about the need to be free. At this time of year the rain is merely a prelude to the sleet and snow that is soon to follow. The original plastic rain hat (left) is perfect for all extreme conditions. It makes one wonder why they have been discarded by everyone but puss-stained old adies. The rain and wind visor is undoubtedly the Cult of the year. Never has something so utilitarian and cool ever slipped through the net. but there are good people reclaiming it: Sadie Frost was recently seen out in one. as was Zoe Ball. or maybe it was Penelope Keith and Felicity Kendall, I forget. (Paul Dale) I Retro plastic rain hats are currently retailing at about l5p at all good charity shops.
