Paco Rabanne Brass Square Chainmail Hood, 1960-70s

The hood is made of square brass pieces with circles cut from the center. Each piece is held to the next one with a series of metal rings. The hood comes to a point at the center front and closes under the chin. At the center back of the hood is a small opening, which was used in at least one photoshoot to extend the wearer's ponytail.
Label: Pierre Cardin

Property From the Ebony Fashion Fair Archive


Condition:    Overall condition is good with some overall wear on the goldtone. Metal label at the center back has snapped in half.  The stated overall condition of the lot is based on the assumption that the wear is consistent with age and use. As everything is sold 'as is', we suggest that you request a more detailed condition report and additional photo. This can be obtained via the INQUIRE button or by email at couturecr@lesliehindman.com. Condition is a matter of opinion and should not be treated as a statement of fact.
