French Easter Bonnets, 1947

From the magazine Plaisir de France, 1947.
A selection of French designers' (modistes) Easter hats.

Legroux: a capeline (broad-brimmed hat) covered with irises.

Jane: a felt hat pierced by a stem of camelias.

Gilbert Orcel: a straw hat veiled in mousseline.

Rose Valois: a toque with multicolor flowers.

Schiaparelli: a bird's nest, a bouquet of sweet peas, and a straw hat decorated with poppies.

Joyeuses Pâques!

These hats are works of art! I've been reading about the royal wedding in London and have been envious of all those fabulous hats making their appearances now. I wish they would come back into general style!

Having now watched the Royal Wedding, I do wish that a few of the guests wore these hats instead of some of those horrific creations!
