Balenciaga Black Leather and gilt metal peaked cap

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Raunchy leather cap designed by the wonderful Nicholas Ghesquiere of Balenciaga. This has a fantastic shape think Marlon Brando "The Wild Ones" - it has a really great mid century men's vibe but is actually designed for his women's collections.
Good quality stiffish leather to hold its shape, with a soft cotton lining.
The chain across the brow of the hat is a good quality flat link gilt chain.
Labelled Balenciaga Paris made in France.
