Hat of the Day Sketch – Paul Poiret party turban, ca. 1913-1914

February 11, 2010

Grab a glass of wine and prepare to lounge in your harem pants and beaded overcoats in this precocious “party turban” designed by the famous Paul Poiret!  It appears to have been made from wrapped organza over a rounded crown with a forehead embellishment, faux pearl drapes on both sides, and a faux pearl-encrusted cap on top with an aigrette plume spray.
