Balenciaga Haute Couture Hat

About

Created by Cristobal Balenciaga for a New York lady who was a member of the International Best Dressed List this hat is simply stunning.

Perched at a jaunty angle the hat is composed of overlapping sheer black petals with a padded flower head at the back. The petals are sheer enough for some serious flirting while the hat is chic enough for the most elegant occasion. The simple black crown has a tortoise comb on the right side and a covered wire at the center back for the added security of a hairpin. It is labelled Balenciaga with the couture numbered tape label underneath. A similar example is in the Cristobal Balenciaga Museum in Barcelona. It is in pristine condition.
