So period cool, black stiff lace domed hat by Christian Dior (labeled Christian Dior Chapeaux Paris - New York), dating to the mid 1960's. The hat has a woven black straw brim band, and is domed with stiff mesh with applied black straw flowers, which look like a very heavy and dense lace. The hat sits on the top of the head, giving almost a crowned effect. The hat measures approx 20" round the inner brim, though it is relatively flexible as to fit, as it sits up on the head, I would say it would best fit a small to medium. The condition is good as to age, there is very slight distortion to the dome, the straw band is in excellent shape. This is a wonderful hat, it has the iconic presence of true designer fashion, and displays very well both on and off the head.
