Pink Chanel Fabric Pillbox is a seven inch (7″) classic pill box round button shape that evokes all the fun and mischief of the 1930s and 1940s.
This hat is made from a Chanel pink wool silk fabric, with a featured touch of pink leather trim. It also has a pure silk pink dupion silk bow that sits at the back. The whole hat is covered in delicate pink veiling that beautifully finishes off the hat.
This hat is designed to sit subtlety at an angle to one side of your head. A hat to be worn with with panache. So simple and yet timeless. This hat makes such a fashion statement with its eye catching combination of textured classic fabric against the satin silk of the bow and veiling.
Naturally this textured pink hat would certainly work for a Winter race day but equally the soft pink colours would make a stunning Spring Racing hat such as during the Melbourne Cup Carnival of races.
A comb sits inside to fit into your hair. An elastic can also be added for absolute security.
How you wear this is so important. A pill box should not simply be put straight on your head. It should be just to the side of the head (either side) creating an interesting angle. You can even have it at the back also at an angle. But never simply plonk it on your head or it will look ridiculous or just not quite right. How you wear a hat is even more important than simply getting the right colour hat.
The delicate pink veiling could be adjusted so it slips down to cover the eyes. This would create such a dramatic look with an aura of mystique and fun.
