Since 1936, in its Parisian ateliers, Maison Michel has been making hats which could never be considered mere accessories. Every day, hatters and milliners create new pieces using their unique, valuable know-how, passed down with passion from generation to generation. Season after season, artistic director Priscilla Royer draws on the heritage of Maison Michel to reinvent the luxury felt hat in her own way.
From felt hats for women to felt hats for men, Maison Michel is distinguished by its remarkable creativity and outstanding quality. Every collection explores the different iconic forms offered by Maison Michel, available in rabbit or wool felt. The House’s flagship model, the Virginie, is a classic fedora featuring a crown designed with a very feminine swirl, while the Charles and the Henrietta offer sleeker and more masculine lines. In addition to fedoras, there are glamorous wide-brimmed hats and cloche hats like the Kate and Julianne, but also boaters and trilbies with more urban, narrow brims, such as the Kiki and Ygor. Just like a piece of clothing, the Maison Michel hat elevates a silhouette and completes a look.
How to look after a felt hat ?
To keep a hat in its best condition, it is recommended to clean it regularly with a hat brush, specifically designed for the purpose. To avoid any distortion, handle the hat by the crown rather than the brim, and store it away from humidity and light. When well cared for, this must-have fashion accessory will protect you from the sun in summer and, above all, offers everyone the freedom to express their personality with style.
