IN OUR EXPERIENCE, the best collaborations are the least expected. So when Gucci teamed up with Major League Baseball for a series of caps, we knew it would be, well, major. A longtime wearer of the New York Yankees hat himself, designer Alessandro Michele plastered Gucci patches onto pink, navy and scarlet caps to instantly up the want factor. How to hit a fashion home run? Treat the cap as your ace (that’s baseball lingo for a team’s best pitcher) and pair with textured, cuddly pieces in warm winter tones.
