Circa 1905 silk velvet hat, by Camille, French. The sovereignty of the leading Parisian milliners is exhibited in this whimsical creation. While working within the expected media and vocabulary of the time - velvet manipulated to give shape and texture, trimmed at the side and underside with artificial flowers - the designer has beautifully integrated the shape, color and form to give the impression of a large cabbage rose.
