Wow! This 1980s-90s SCHIAPARELLI large silk ribbon veiled straw hat is a showstopper! This bright red straw hat is wrapped decorated with a large statement folded silk ribbon which is finished off with a gold hat pin. The red veil which covers the front of the hat is decorated with velvet polkadots! Tag inside reads 'Miss Schiaparelli Paris'.

Damage to note: there is a minor tear in the silk bow & a tear to the front of the veil. The top of the hat has a minor fade. (See photos) This does not effect its wearability as the structure of the straw is very strong. It's a stunning Schiaparelli piece that any designer hat collector would love! Sold AS-IS.

Circumference: 22 inches.

Elsa Schiaparelli was an Italian fashion designer. Along with Coco Chanel, her greatest rival, she is regarded as one of the most prominent figures in fashion between the two World Wars. Starting with knitwear, Schiaparelli's designs were heavily influenced by Surrealists like her collaborators Salvador Dalí and Jean Cocteau. Her clients included the heiress Daisy Fellowes and actress Mae West. Schiaparelli did not adapt to the changes in fashion following World War II and her couture house closed in 1954.
