Starting today (and every Friday from now on) I will be posting pictures and reviews that showcase vintage hats, either from my personal collection or from other sources. As many of you know, I purchased almost one hundred vintage hats this past year, and I’m anxious to share the best of them with all of you.
The hat being featured today is a red velvet special occasion hat. Unfortunately there’s not a label in this hat, but I am quite certain that it was created in the mid-to-late 1940s, possibly early ‘50s, based on other designs that I have studied. The piece is embellished with burnt ostrich feathers that were specially dyed for this hat. I can envision pairing this hat to great effect with an impeccable coat or tailored suit. It would be impossible to go unnoticed while wearing this stunning piece!
