Aubergine Parasisal Cloche with Olives

Aubergine Parasisal Cloche with Olives

225.00

A somewhat more contemporary cloche has found its' way into this summer's collection! 
Did I just say that?? Well, the cloche is a classic shape, no matter what the era! Proof that it has withstood the test of time! This version, in a deep, rich shade of aubergine, or eggplant if you prefer, is hand blocked on vintage wooden millinery blocks, and is still a bit reminiscent of the 1920's silhouette, with the brim wider at the sides, which is wired for a sturdy edge. Hand stitched and trimmed with soutache braid on the upper and under brim. The crown is freeform sculpted into pleats, while the hand dyed vintage silk satin ribbon follows the crown pleating. Accented at the side, is a cluster of vintage 1940's black millinery olives, in perfect condition, with restored, vintage millinery leaves, and more soutache braid. This beautiful, and very chic hat is lined in a vibrant geometric satin. Entirely hand finished. Malto bene for that Amalfi Coast vacation you've been dreaming about!!! Remember to order the eggplant with olives, and a nice Pino Grigio!!
Fits heads to measure 22" to 22 1/2"comfortably.
