1920s MILLINERY: hats from 'Madame Weigel's Journal of Fashion'

Six postcards of 1920s hats, A6 in size (148 x 105mm), printed on quality 350gsm card with a glossy finish. The reverse side of each card is printed with the hat's description and date.

With the new freedoms of the 1920s, women's fashion changed significantly, including hats. Millinery in the 1920s saw cloche hats all the rage, close to the head over the new Eton crop or shingle cut. Madame Weigel's journal saw this style as 'becoming' to most women, comfortable, often very smart, and 'undeniably useful'. This set of 1920s millinery postcards shows how versatile the style could be.

Postcards included in this set:

An Attractive Transparent Hat of Looped Tagel Straw, 1926

Fashionable Lenci Felt Hat with Fox Fur Choker, 1927

Matron's Hat of Fawn Corded Ribbon Trimmed in Tagel Straw, 1927

Up-to-Date Helmet Hat in Marble Felt, 1928

The New Eye Veil, Shown on a Matron's Hat, 1928

The Beaded Theatre Cap, 1929
