Half hats are a brimless shallow hat that usually sits flat on top of the crown - like an extra wide bandeau. The half hat was created by Lilly Dache, who won an American Designer award for it in 1941. Dior designed veiled half hats beginning in 1947. They remained popular during the 1950s and morphed into variations including openwork half-hats comprised of a wired piping frame with flowers, feathers or other trims.

Lucy Puci (Loosey Poosey) was the brainchild of Lucylle Smith Gilbert who rose from apprentice to principal designer for Chicago based millinery company Lemington Inc. Gilbert designed hats for first ladies Mamie Eisenhower and Pat Nixon. Another loyal hat buyer was Carol Channing. In the company’s heyday, the company produced over 900 hats per day under various labels. Gilbert, famous for designing 10 – 15 different hat styles per day, had a very interesting way of working. Instead of sketching her ideas she drew inspiration from the materials on hand. Other labels by the company were Lemington and Sam Budwig. Lemington closed sometime in the late 1960s. Gilbert died in 1994 at the age of 86. Breton style which means a rounded or flat-crowned hat with a brim that turns up around the edges, originally worn by peasants in Brittany, a region in France.
