Balenciaga Black Leather and gilt metal peaked cap


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.
