Such an amazing little time capsule is this new old stock 1960s Yves Saint Laurent stylish cello straw vintage cloche hat with original hanging tags and box. This lovely never worn chapeau comes with its original price tag and YSL hanging paper tag designating it style #5305, it can be called a cloche with an upturned brim or a Bretton with a tall crown I suppose. Either way it is wonderful and in pristine condition coming in its original department store hat box. The store was H.C. Prange Company which was a Midwestern concern up until the 1970s when it went out of business.
Constructed from three different colors of cello straw with a silver/gray on the underside of the brim, white on top of the brim and a light khaki green on the crown. The internal head circumference measures app. 22 inches and it stands app. 6 inches tall by 11.5 inches wide. The label reads, “YvesSaintLaurent Paris-New York”
Condition is a pristine NM with no flaws or signs of use to be found. Basically a never worn hat that was stored very safely in its original box all these years. Bright, clean and glossy inside and out, a perfect addition to any advanced collection.
