Wonderful c1997 Yves Saint Laurent Purple Felt Hat w Braided Band

This is a gorgeous hat that I believe to be from the 1997 season. It is made of a felted wool in a bright and vivid purple shade that is quite lovely. It has a high crown that is trimmed by a wide black band. The band combines a black suede and a black patent leather that is intricately braided. The brim is wide and is done with a slight downwards slope that perfectly frames the face. The shape and color give it a bit of drama and it is the perfect pop of color to add to your wardrobe. Excellent condition

Interior purple grosgrain band. Tagged a size 57 and has a hand written tag that says A970.

Item# A368
