Maison Michel Paris is renowned for producing luxury headpieces, hats, and accessories. Founded in 1936, the couture milliner is today owned by the Maison Chanel and led by Creative Director, Laetitia Crahay. Chanel, in fact, has acquired many ateliers over the years, in an effort to maintain ancestral crafts and skills. Every year since 2002, Karl Lagerfeld has centered his Métier d’Arts collection around themes that showcase the extraordinary skills of the Maison’s various artisans. Aside from producing for Chanel, Maison Michel Paris has collaborated with theatre and opera costumers and even Hollywood. Its commercial line of hats can be bought online and made-to-measure services are available from their Paris headquarters. Team your straw Virginie orange grosgrain-trimmed fedora with summer’s whites and hit the street for a romantic evening out.
