Day cap in red rayon taffeta, covered with cockerel feathers in the same colour
It belonged to Niki Stifel.
Round cap covered with cockerel feathers. The feathers cover all of the hair and are protected by a hexagonal tulle veil in salmon silk. This hat is part of model number 30 for the winter collection of 1963, together with a green chenille coat. The combination of such different textures creates a spectacular contrast.
