Elevate your vintage fashion collection with this exquisite piece of history – a rare 1950’s Yves Saint Laurent studded white felted fur cap. Imbued with the timeless elegance that YSL is renowned for, this cap is a true gem of its era. The silver tone studded embellishments add a touch of luxury, while the meticulously pierced geometric details on the side flaps create a captivating visual appeal.
Crafted with precision, this cap features a light blue grosgrain fabric interior band, ensuring a comfortable fit that’s as stylish as it is functional. The interior proudly bears the Yves Saint Laurent fabric label, a mark of authenticity and craftsmanship. Accompanying this exceptional piece is a vintage Vincent deKoven hat box, a testament to its cherished history.
Despite its age, this YSL cap remains in amazing condition, a testament to its quality and care. While pictures capture its beauty, they fail to truly encapsulate its allure. A slight stain on the grosgrain inside the hat is the only blemish, and it’s a minor detail that doesn’t detract from its overall excellence. In fact, we would rate it as “Excellent Vintage Condition,” with the only hindrance being that small stain.

- Side Flap Width: 1 1/4″
- Flap Lengths: 7 3/8″
