Pitchfork Street Style… The Hat

July 16, 2012

Maybe it’s just because Breaking Bad is fresh on my mind that I chose to post this woman’s photograph first. One of the most interesting elements of the Breaking Bad storyline is how Walter White transforms into Heisenberg by doffing his pork pie hat. It’s the hat that gives him the power to embrace his inner darkness. Being the ultimate fashion nerd means I fixate on the little details of costumes in my favorite shows and movies. Walt’s relationship with his alter-ego Heisenberg vis-à-vis his hat illustrates the loving care Breaking Bad’s writers pour into the series. In this show, everything has meaning.
