Vintage Christian Dior Black Silk Satin Turban hat


Turban style hats have been incorporated into western fashion since British aesthetes began questioning restrictive dress during the 19th century. During the mid-20th century, everyone from Queen Elizabeth to Audrey Hepburn wore variations on this theme. This early 1960s-era turban from Christian Dior was likely worn with a posh skirt suit and arched eyebrows. Made from a black silk satin, the hat’s controlled ruching and wrapping is kept tidily intact with hand stitching. A pliable but well-formed crown fits over a wide range of hair styles including smart up-do’s and close crops.


Circumference: 22 inches

This 1960s turban style hat by Christian Dior is in excellent condition. Made from black silk satin, hand-tacked ruching catches the light, revealing deft pleating and wrapping. The pliable satin crown has the Dior label placed at center back. High-quality vintage pieces like this are yours to live in and love while increasing in value every year. It’s never too soon to start collecting them, as an investment in your wardrobe—and in yourself.
