Bill Cunningham William J. Bright Green Wool Felt Hat with Fringe
Perhaps you saw the Capsule Collection of William J. hats that I posted to 1stdibs in 2012. The whole collection of 22 hats were snapped up in an instant by the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC for the Costume Institute collection. William J. is the "nom de chapeau" for Bill Cunningham the late beloved photographer of street style and high society events for the New York Times. Before his career as a photographer his creative talents were used as a milliner in the 1940's and 50's, working under the name William J. an abbreviation of his name. This hat is from the same source as the hats that are now at The Met. They come from a friend and neighbor who was the niece of an executive at Bonwit Teller in New York back in the day when ladies wore hats to work. The executive was a very good friend of Mr. Cunningham, (as was her niece) resulting in this large cache of hats found in Bucks County. This hat is a cheerful Spring green wool felt with a clever self fringe as the brim. It must look wonderful when you walk. Meant to sit up on the head there is a criss cross of grosgrain ribbons inside to help maintain the shape. The hat is in excellent, wearable condition. The only issue is some soiling on the interior hat band, I have not tried to clean it. Measurements; Height 7" Width 9" Interior circumference 22"
