#6663 - c. 1947 BALENCIAGA, Paris, Made in France Black Velvet Hat with Feathers! Think "New Look"! What do I have to say about this? A new Balenciaga hat can cost you well over $1000, or you can find a few "reproduction Balenciaga" vintage hats out there (I have one on this website), but it's hard to find the original vintage Balenciaga hats... and even harder to find the fabulous looking ones.... like this!! Black velvet covered with black "fantasy feathers" and finished off with a large black velvet bow flopping over the feathers near the top. This would look perfect with your Balenciaga dinner suit or fancier dinner dress. Excellent condition.
SOLD - but on display in Museum Category for Research/Display
