"This becoming pillbox hat and mitts set was designed in Paris. Originally in white, it would look equally smart in black, or a gay poster colour, such as scarlet, jade green, royal blue or mustard yellow. Double knitting wool makes a beautiful, firm fabric, so that the hat holds its shape well."
There's something simultaneously glamorous and practical about this little pillbox hat and mitts combo from the 1950s. Designed in Paris, but you know that these woolly beauties will see you through the worst of the British winter, too.
