Halston of Bergdorf Goodman Wig Hat

About

Halston started his career as a hat designer for Bergdorf Goodman in New York in the early 1960's. He made a famous series of "Wig Hats", one was featured on the cover of Harpers Bazaar in October, 1962. I was lucky enough to find seven of these rare hats, all unworn. Four of them are now at The Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum, two are in private collections and this is the last one of the group. It is a true museum piece and a rare unworn example from the early career of Halston.
A mesh hat frame is covered in light blue coq feathers, creating the look of "blue hair" in a short bob. The hat is labeled Halston of Bergdorf Goodman and still bears a Bergdorf Goodman paper tag. It is in excellent condition with minor discoloration to the interior grosgrain ribbon.
