"Jacques Heim" Vintage 1940's Swansdown & Felt Ski Set Hat & Mittens

This rare and sumptuous 1940's winter fashion set, by the talented Jacques Heim, are pieces to behold and never again find.

The sculptural shape of the hat, boasts a padded bright coral pink swansdown plumage around the brim of hat, contrasting the soft fur felt flat crown, and side panels, that act as ear warmers. The hat fastens below the chin with a ribbon bow. The internal part of the hat is made up of soft fur felt, with a small black gabardine ribbon panel along the back of the crown.
The matching mittens are accented by swansdown plumage along the top of the mittens, with contrasting tightly woven black cotton, and black leather along the palms. The elasticated wrists open to a fleece lining.
Every last detail of this ski set showcases the incredible millinery design of the era.

Label: Jacques Heim. The label is attached internally along the crown on the hat, it is very faint and has the original Jacques Heim shop address in Paris. This hat is a runway piece for the fashion house, and so does not sport a classic Jacques Heim Label, as it was never meant to be for sale to the public.
