Beautiful fine straw hat by the famous fashion designer, Lilly Dache. Lilly Dache was born in France and immigrated to the United States in 1924. She began her career as a millinery saleswomen, and became a famous designer mainly known for her hats, she became one of the foremost milliners in the USA with a career that spanned almost three decades.
The hat is of very finely woven straw, with a ruched glazed cotton lower crown, and fine straw upper crown. The whole effect is soft and supple, and is very Edwardian revival, with a deep brim and striking profile. A small woven straw bow adds interest to the brim. Exceptionally flattering and well made, this is the perfect shape to add elegance to any outfit.
The hat carries a Dachelles designed by Lilly Dache label, I estimate it dates to the late 50's. The hat measures 21" round the inner brim and will not go larger, it is in very good estate order for the age, with just the most minor wear to the straw.
Very elegant and wearable hat by a legendary designer, one of my all time favorite hats to date, it is even nicer in person, very highly quality designer.
