An Early Importation From Paris
The Veil Draped Hat
Among the new French imports in the Millinery world, no
vogue stands out more distinctly than that of the draped-veil.
The model pictured is a charming representa?
tive of this latest style note from Paris. A gently
rolling upturned hat of black plush, it is trimmed
with a soft gracefully draped veil of Chantilly Lace,
caught with a single jet ornament.
Notable as it is for its emphasis of the new
mode, together with a beguiling picturesqueness of
effect, it is nevertheless but one of many styles intro?
ducing some phase of the veil treatment.
Other equally lovely models are now on display
in our French Room, where there is a splendid col?
lection of original models, adaptations and copies.
Models in all black are varied by those in rust
colorings and copper tones, those suit and fur shades
