This hat is SPRING! The soft pale peach color, the pretty silk Rose detail and the elegant straw Fedora all come together to give both the wearer and the admirer a breath of fresh Spring air! A 1980s Fedora style hat styled by Adolfo II, this hat is made from the finest quality woven straw which is extremely lightweight and comfortable to wear. The swaths of peach silk chiffon which are draped so beautifully around the crown of the hat exude feminity, as well as the do the silk full Rose bloom and bud which stylishly adorn the side of the hat. The bouquet is made to look as if it is held by a hand rolled and hand stitched straw holder which can be easily seen in the photos....another sign of impeccable quality! Green cloth leaves add another nice touch to this lovely confection of a hat! The hat is unlined but does have an unexpected, though subtle, red grosgrain ribbon inner hatband. There is also a black elastic cord to secure this light straw hat to the wearer's head. The outer brim is wired and covered ever so well with a fold of the straw material which is almost invisible to the eye. And, oh by the way, if you detect a little white string attached to the inner hatband in the photos, it's a remnant of the original price tag and I chose to let it remain to be removed at the discretion of the new owner. This wonderful Adolfo II hat is just perfect for Spring and Summer wear and will keep it's appeal for many seasons to come.
Condition: Very Good
This hat would have been given an "Excellent" condition rating but for one small issue which I hope you will be able to see in the photos of the back of the hat. It appears that there is a very slight impression or crease in the back of the crown on the right side. It looks to me as if the straw was possibly pressed in and thereby this mark was made. But rest assured, this minute issue will not take away from the sheer beauty of this hat....but, just the same, must be mentioned. Otherwise, this hat is clean and ready to wear.
