Fall into the new season with Winter’s most runway-worthy trend, the “it” Maison Michel hat.
Some of you might remember, when I did a short interview of the famous New York boutique Kirna Zabete co-owner and fashion icon Sarah Easley, that she told me, if there was one thing I should buy for the new season to update my wardrobe it should be a Maison Michel hat…
It took me some time to get to it. I guess it was a street style photo by Arizona Muse in Vogue, an interview of Laetitia Crahay, Maison Michel’s artistic director at TheCoveteur and some background research to realize why it was worth paying the high price tag!
Since 1936, the Maison Michel has continued to perfect its art. Creating hats for the most prestigious studios, it is recognised today for its vast capacity to explore shapes and materials.
Laetitia Crahay, Head of accessories and jewellery at CHANEL and Artistic Director of the Maison Michel, has designed since 2006 Ready-to-Wear hats and hair accessories. Fresh and seductive, with a strong identity, and perfectly in the spirit of the times, her creations have already become essentials.
I decided to get the grey Andre Maison Michel hat. Grey is classic and kind of edgy!
How to determine your Maison Michel hat size?
To figure out your hat size, measure your head with a tape measure about a 1-2 cm above your eyebrows where your hat will rest. Mine is 54-55 cm which is size small.
