Of all the great Parisian couture houses, Dior is one the most famous and prestigious in the world, embodying Christian Dior’s sublime vision of femininity. The Italian couturier Gianfranco Ferré, was artistic director of the house of Dior from 1989 to 1996. At the dawn of 1990s, Gianfranco Ferré provided a glamorous, daring touch, enhanced by sumptuous materials, rich colours and voluptuous, exuberant silhouettes, for a femininity that was both sophisticated and contemporary - and powerful too, highlighting the growing power of women in society. The successor to Yves Saint Laurent and the duo of Marc Bohan and Frédéric Castet created a new archetype: the woman of the moment, and not with a specific customer in mind. From his first haute couture collection presented in 1989 in the garden of the Salomon de Rotschild Hotel, and until 1996, Gianfranco Ferré continued to draw on the history and codes of Dior, to which he added a modern twist. He even revived a tradition inherited by Dior’s founding couturier, by naming each of his designs.

“A hat is essential to any outfit. It completes it. In a way, a hat is the best way to express your personality.” ~ Christian Dior.

The twin of this wide-brim hat was presented on the 1990 runway, Gianfranco’s second couture collection for Christian Dior. It's made of natural straw which has been masterfully handwoven. A fashion treasure.
