A Burgundy Flower Pillbox hat evoking the elegance of the 1950s style of hat. Wendy has called this hat “Elegante”. An amazing headpiece. Overtones of the 1950's Jackie O hats. A classic 50's style ring pillbox covered in pink and burgundy flowers. The block was made specifically for a client of the exclusive Galleries Layfayette shop in Paris, France. The block is dated 1951, and still has the client reference number. Such a rare block to use. It is a beautiful shape, and is designed to have your hair bun inside the ring. Your hair bun sits neatly inside the ring.
It is made with a silk fabric over the base shape, and is extremely light to wear. It is a tall shape rather than the flatter more open ring like my 'Rebekka' french ring- the block shape made for the same client in the 1950's. This gorgeous burgundy flower pillbox hat is covered with many silk flowers in shades of pinks and burgundy, all hand dyed to create a tonal effect. This is a totally unique hat. Its couture millinery. It is so distinctive that it will be the total statement to match any outfit. It has a pure silk lining in cerise. This is a one off piece and will not be replicated. However you can have a custom made pillbox ring hat made to your requirements using the same block shape.
