Black and Gold – Dior Noir Pillbox

$310.00 $210.00



This piece is a small cocktail sized black pillbox. Absolutely stunning pillbox, covered in black silk, with an overlay of black silk Dior veiling. A hand tooled black silk rose, highlighted with gold and sits atop the piece. The piece is then wrapped luxuriously in genuine Dior black and gold lace.

The pillbox hat was worn during the later half of the ’40s. It was part of the new look, a style that was refined and elegant in its understatement. It was stiff and round and usually undecorated except for a possible net veil in front that covered the eyes. It was worn either on top of the head or on an angle on the side. Hatpins would hold the hat in place. The pillbox could be worn with anything, from daywear to evening, with dressier styles and more elaborate decorations. It became an icon of the 1950s.
