Just back from being on loan to Vanity Fair for their Feb 2012 fashion shoot in Paris (yes, REALLY!) it is back in our shop for sale. It is deserving of all of the fashionista attention available.
After giving the fashion world innovations like the wedge heel and "Shocking Pink", Schiaparelli's legacy lives on today in rare and exquisite items like this extraordinary hat.
In the wildly popular turban style, this absolutely gorgeous Schiaparelli stunner features multiple layers of pleated tulle in beautiful pastel shades of green, yellow, pink, and blue.
An enormous bow protrudes from one side, making the hat a real show-stopper. The interior is lined with stiff netting and a wide yellow grosgrain ribbon at the edge.
Of course, the original silk tag is attached and reads "Schiaparelli Paris". This hat is simply stunning and remains in near-perfect condition.
We take a great deal of time, care and discrimination in finding our hats to sell on Ruby Lane.
This is a hugely collectible hat. When these are gone, they are gone, and to find one this pretty in this condition is rare.
If you are a mad hatter, this is a must add to your vintage hat collection. It is, obviously very wearable, so don't be shy.
There isn't enough we can say about this hat. It is truly a gem and beautiful.
