The Schiaparelli Hat

This weekend I came into this awesome Elsa Schiaparelli beaded beret.  Elsa Schiaparelli was a contemporary of Coco Chanel, and they had a fairly serious rivalry. Mademoiselle apparently could not stand to say her name, and instead referred to her as ‘that Italian woman.’
The hat is a lightweight cream colored wool. That combined with the black beading reminds me of a scoop of cookies and cream ice cream.
