JACKIE CORAL REEF

If there is a point of reference, an image that is inseparable from this type of hat, it’s that of former first lady Jackie Kennedy. She was the one who made them fashionable in the ‘60s and turned them into a symbol of elegance, class, and style. And she did it with an accessory that was not thought of as everyday wear when it first emerged in the 1930s, but that’s how she wore it, and with impeccable results. Since then, its shape has become an icon.

At Balel, we were inspired by her to design our Jackie Coral Reef model, a throwback to the past that can adapt to new trends. This spectacular movement of its light purple and orange fringe captivates all who gaze upon it. Its interior is lined with delicate orange silk crepe and purple ribbon, leaving all the seams concealed to achieve a finish that remains true to its perfect nature.

The pillbox is a flat hat without a brim that is placed on the top part of the head. Given its small size, it must be fastened to the hair with a comb and two hairpins.

When it became fashionable in the ‘60s, women followed the prevailing trend of backcombing their hair to create extra volume. This method made it easier to conceal the hairpins used to secure the hat.

To wear the Jackie Coral Reef, we recommend following this practical tradition and backcombing the area of hair where the comb will be placed to assure better grip. This Jackie model may be worn atop the head like the other Jackie models or tilted forwards and to the side.

The shape of the pillbox suits all kinds of faces, especially wide ones, as wearing the hat on the top part of the head balances one’s features. Its position is also perfect for women who need to add height.

Due to its shape and the refined materials with which it is made, the Jackie Coral Reef is suitable for both day and night events, creating a look of sophistication without being too flashy.

When choosing a hairstyle, it can be placed on hair worn loose to achieve a more casual result or with a simple low bun for a more formal finish.

All of our hats are made with the highest quality materials to make them last for many years. To keep your hat in perfect condition, we recommend storing it in its box after each use. It is advisable to bring it in to Balel anytime your hat requires cleaning, ironing, having the inside ribbon changed, or any other pampering or treatment.
