About

When Gabrielle Chanel opened her first boutique on the Rue Cambon in Paris in 1910, it was hats she debuted to her early clientele. Having performed as a singer before becoming a designer, Coco, as she was nicknamed on stage, had a sense for theatrics as much as she did for simplicity, which she found lacking in a modern woman’s wardrobe. Famous actresses of the day took note and began making her a name years before she unveiled the sportswear, perfume and haute couture that would firmly establish the House of Chanel. Fine millinery remains a hallmark of the French megabrand nearly a century later, as exemplified in this rare cloche. The classic bell silhouette is exquisitely crafted from thousands of tiny jet black glass beads and then distinctly embellished with playful long beaded strands. This is a collector’s piece to be cared for, loved and shared with generations to come.

Measurements:
Height: 8 inches
Circumference: 22 Inches

This rare vintage Chanel hat is in good condition. It is crafted from thousands of tiny jet black glass beads and then embellished with coordinating shoulder-grazing strands that fall from its apex. The cloche silhouette is finished with a Chanel label, and a black silk band at the interior brim for a secure fit. High-quality vintage pieces like this are yours to live in and love while increasing in value every year. It’s never too soon to start collecting them, as an investment in your wardrobe—and in yourself.
