Bergdorf Goodman Custom Pillbox Hat
Halston is credited with designing the
pillbox hat which was popularized by
Jacqueline Kennedy. Halston was the head
of the Millinery Salon at Bergdorf
Goodman, so it is probably safe to say
that this is his design.
Created for a socially prominent New
Yorker who was on the International Best
Dressed List it is in pristine
condition. The hat has a custom order
number under the Bergdorf Goodman label.
The square design of this green wool hat
is unusual. It is reinforced by the
stitching on the sides and top of the
hat in a maze like pattern. Two green
tipped hat pins as well as two interior
combs are used to keep the hat in place.
