This is a superb hat made by Christian Dior in the 1960s. This hat is fit for a princess, the lustrous pink satin shimmers like the sweetest, most exotic confection.

This turban style hat is beautifully made. The satin falls in gentle folds almost effortlessly, although it was obviously a technical feat of millinery.

The color of the hat is difficult to represent, but can be described as a cross between strawberry ice cream and rose champagne, a very rich pink. The hat is punctuated with deep, dark red feathers, a slightly deeper red than in the photographs (which are illuminated for detail). The feathers have wonderful movement and have been expertly placed, sewn into the folds of the satin.

At the back of the hat, a hat pin has been placed. This hat pin is wonderful. It features a silver ball with a floral cap that is richly verdigrised, topped by a large, champagne colored baroque faux pearl. What could be a more divine finishing touch to such a fantastical hat? We have chosen to leave the hat pin in the hat, as we feel the decision to remove it should be left to the collector. The hat is lined in pink netting.
