Hats worn during the day were sometimes more subdued than cocktail or evening creations. However, this hat shows Schiaparelli's unique talent to use materials in uncommon ways to create a clever design and bring style to daywear. Here, Schiaparelli uses an unorthodox material, eyelet, more commonly used in clothing, to create a flirtatious wing-like bow on an otherwise tailored, sculptural form.
