Yves Saint Laurent Glossy Color Block Snakeskin Trim Bowler Hat YSL, 1990s
Accessories can make or break a look. Yves Saint Laurent was notoriously daring with his accessories that honed in on a key element of a design or captured a more hidden feature of it. Showcased in a variety of different colors on the 1990 runway, this intensely colored bowler hat was carefully crafted to coordinate a look using its specific color story.
Made from a glossy coated rattan, this crown of the hat is dyed in a sumptuous lapis blue that is broken up by a snakeskin hat band before moving into the teal brim. Around the edge, a canary yellow brim binding provides a balanced contrast between the two sections of the hat. While the brighter colors create a vibe for a soft, day look, the deeper tone blue and the snakeskin elevate this hat to seamlessly accessorize with a suit or cocktail look as well.
Brim: 2.5 inches
Crown height: 3 inches
Circumference: 23 inches
In excellent condition the interior of the hat features a teal grosgrain sweatband and the YSL label. 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.
