Pink Felt Doll Hat with Feather and Net Trim, 1938

This pink felt Doll Hat has the label “A Louis Miller Model”.

During the early part of the 1930s, hats where known to have wide brims and high crowns, however, around 1935 milliners developed a much different fashion for hats. Hats now were high crowned, tilted at an angle, smaller and had a flirtatious quality.

A famous designer at the time was Schiaparelli, who pushed the range of hat design and created hats that may have been described as “Zany”. Schiaparelli would also be the one to coin the Doll Hat.

The Doll Hat name is given to small types of hats in various styles and materials. It is usually worn forward and tilted above the right eye.
