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.

The 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.
Born in France, Lilly Dache, learned hat making working for Parisian milliners Suzanne Talbot, and Reboux before immigrating to the U.S. as a teenager. She moved to New York in 1924, with only $13, and took a job at the Bonnet Shop, a tiny New York milliner. Eventually, Lilly and a co-worker bought the business. In 1937 Dache bought her own building at 18 East Fifth-Sixth Street. She was one of the most prominent milliners in the U.S. in the 1930s through 1950s, receiving several awards. She was known for creating the "profile hat," the "half hat," the "snood" and a visored cap for women workers during World War II, and a "stand up" beret. In 1938, one of her hats -- a turban with a complexion veil (tinted green across the eyes, rose across the cheeks) -- was sealed in a time capsule at the New York World's Fair, to be opened in 6938. Lilly designed the iconic towering fruit turban headdress for Carmen Miranda, worn in That Night in Rio (1941). In her heyday, her business occupied seven stories of a ten story building. There were two fitting rooms for celebrities, one in silver for brunettes, one in gold for blondes. Her fitting room on the wholesale floor had "walls padded in tufted pink satin". She moved in high society and always wore one of her own hats when she went out. In 1946 her autobiography, Talking Through My Hats became a bestseller. In 1958, she discovered Halston in Chicago and brought him to New York. When she closed her business in 1968, Loretta Young bought her last 30 hats. After retiring she licensed use of her name. She died in 1989. Labels: Lilly Dache, Lilly Dache Debs, Lilly's Dillys, Dachettes (introduced in the 1950s), Mademoiselle Lilly (introduced in 1950s), Young Modes (for young women). The trademark office also shows Drifting, Dashing, Lillymatic, and Dachelle as marks owned by Dache. There are at least 37 examples of Dache's hats in the hat collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, including a doll hat circa 1939-40, a beaded, appliqued beret/toque from the 1940s, a straw and velvet sculpted toque with quill circa 1948, a draped toque with feathers, circa 1949. The Philadelphia Museum of Art has 12 Daches in its collection, including an all-over flower half hat circa 1947, a variation on a jockey hat trimmed with flowers and bows circa 1947, a wide brim made of horsehair and burnt ostrich feathers circa 1955, a red taffeta open top pillbox with a red bow and pink silk rose circa 1957, an avant-garde spiral toque from the 1950s.*
