A hat has never been regarded as just an obligatory item of clothing for women. It is a way to express the individuality of the wearer in most cases, rather than a means of protection from the sunrays or cold. For many years women have chosen this very item of clothing to highlight their femininity, notwithstanding the fact that hats can be worn both by men and women, unlike the skirt, which is considered to be solely a piece from a woman’s wardrobe. This means women have always been more concerned while choosing this accessory than any other key item of their outfit.
In recent years however fancy hats are not that widely used in everyday life, since women prefer the casual style most of the time and there are little opportunities for them to look elegant. Who will ever wish to wear an opulent hat with feathers and other accessories in combination with sneakers and jeans? On the other hand there are still the ones, who can stand the rush of modern life and be gorgeous at the same time.
Eres and Maison Michel give the modern woman one more reason to be elegant with their unique model of a wide-brimmed lace hat launched recently. At first glance it becomes obvious that tradition and creative passion go hand in hand, making the hat a real hit of the season. Inspired by Catherine Deneuve in the movie “Belle de Jour”, the joint talent of Eres and Maison Michel has resulted in an unbelievable creation that can top off your favorite look, giving it even more charm. The distinctive feature of this hat is not just the shape, but the material itself. Lace is widely used as a dominant material, which means the favorite brand of thousands of women this time makes an accent on romanticism. Who can resist this black wide-brimmed hat with a slight touch of vintage influence? The autumn leaf though being the central motive of this model is not overemphasized, thus serving as a hidden gem only.
What regards the shape, that’s another reason to crave the Eres by Maison Michel hat that eagerly! The longer back resembles a cape reaching the shoulders, which adds a mystic charm to the entire look of the wearer. It’s not a secret that capes used to be an indispensable part of the image of a femme fatale. And the reason is linked to the enigmatic impression the women made hiding their gaze under the capes, thus having the opportunity to see and examine whoever deserved the attention without revealing their identity. And who says anonymity isn’t on trend anymore?
