Vintage Elsa Schiaparelli Black Sculpted Satin Hat With Feathers
Perhaps one of the most influential designers of the 20th century, Elsa Schiaparelli is most recognized for her surrealist style and subversive use of materials in dressmaking. However, Schiaparelli was also an accomplished milliner, creating stylish and quirky hats. No matter what the medium, Elsa Schiaparelli unapologetically crafted each and every item to be a representation of her artistic vision and shocking personality.
Formed from an ink black silk satin, this beret style hat features carefully hand-sculpted pleats that give the mood of a turban. Exploding from a fold in the back, plumes of wispy black feathers texturize the smooth plane of the hat introducing a classy levity to the design. Smart and sensible, this Schiaparelli hat is a must-have accessory overflowing with potential to add an historic charm to an evening or semi-formal look.
Circumference: 21.5 -22 inches
