Weekend Eye Candy - Christian Dior 1948

The perfect hat for spring, this 1948 cartwheel of pink feathers is by Christian Dior. Wide hats like this were worn to balance the new fuller skirts that had just been introduced the year before.

Beautiful, but not for a windy day!

My favorite designer/era! What a treat, thank you!

Thanks for showing this. I love how the wide brim hat can frame a women's face. It seems we only wear wide-brimmed hats in the summer these days. The last time I saw many wide-brimmed felt hats was in the eighties.

Dior deliciousness!

Thank you for that! I wonder how hard it would be to make a hat like that. You'd need a lot of matching feathers (ostrich tips, anyone?) and one of those tiny buckram circles used for fascinators. Hmmm...
