1950s Green Velvet Schiaperelli Beret

There is soon to be a Met exhibit featuring Elsa Schiaperelli so you pretty much guarantee that her pieces will increase in value. So the time to snatch up great pieces is now! This is a fabulous little beret styled hat that would be a keeper with or without its label. Emerald green velvet is shaped into a beret meant to sit higher on the head rather then pulled down as its later counterparts. I love the floppy little bow that though meant to be worn in the back can be styled to sit just about anywhere. Little faceted black beads dangle all over the cap. The inside is lined in black grosgrain looking fabric and you can see some of the hand stitching of the beads.
