Dior in the Age of Twiggy


I love hats, and have been fortunate enough to own two Dior Chapeaux, over the course of time. Mine were earlier -- 1961 or 1962 turbans -- but these ones from 1967 are interesting as well. I must say that I thought at first that the model's parasol was a part of the hat, making it a kitschy living thing. Fortunately, not so, because I can't fathom the house of Dior going to that extreme.

Love the makeup on the models, and they didn't go to a lot of fussery in getting the set done up -- it almost looks like they just walked out the door, found somewhere the lighting was good, and started shooting. I just wish it was in color!
