An Unusual Beret of the 1930's

Illustration by Pierre Pages for French Vogue, 1936

Berets of the mid 1930's were not your typical style.  They were often twisted, folded, and angled as illustrated by this Louise Bourbon black felt beret with a whisper of fine veiling over the eyes.  Gene Marshall fans will note the fabulous black and white striped sleeves reminiscent of Miss Marshall's 2007 Rare Deal Convention outfit called "Dangerous Curves".
