Karl Lagerfeld Designs Hats for Maison Michel

Hats, hats, hats! Karl Lagerfield, Chanel’s creative director, has created five new hat designs for French milliner Maison Michel’s upcoming spring/summer 2015 collection. We are super excited to see the gorgeous new designs that were inspired by the minimalist designs of Auguste Michel in 1936, as well as by Karl’s favourite models Karlie Kloss, Kendall, Anja Rubik, Poppy, Cara Delevingne. The German designer working with Chanel since 1996 was invited to make the Maison Michel capsule collection of hats and headpieces.

The new Karl Lagerfeld for Maison Michel hats 2015 are lovely, with black rabbit felt and straw hats with black gros grain ribbons, each of them named after the 5 main models of Lagerfield. We have baseball caps and peaked officers’ caps, as well as wide brimmed hats in both straw and felt. While Kendall features a large brim for ensuring eyes are shaded, Karlie, Anja, Cara and Poppy all come with mini-veils in either lace or mesh. We love the look and we certainly have a thing for the 18th century designs in modern terms. Maison Michel will have them available for the public at large by mid-February and we certainly cannot wait to get our hands on them. If anything, it will be nice to see hats adorning pretty heads up and down the street, the way women looked quite some time ago. It’s only of late that women prefer to keep their locks aired out in the open with nary a protective measure taken to prevent sunstroke.

Nadja Bender and Jamie Bochert are two models, who have decided to take the selfie sessions with hashtags seriously, putting up images of themselves under the tag #maisonmichelbykarllagerfield. The use of social media hashtags is ingenious and ensures better coverage of the fantastic new collection. With the Internet evolving at such a quick pace, this is one great way to get more people engaged in the world of fashion, as everyone who has a chance to try on or purchase the pieces is encouraged to also tag themselves in a similar manner, no matter what social media platform is used. Anything from Facebook to Instagram to Twitter is a viable stage on which to strut about like a peacock unfurling its tail. After all, what’s the point of fashion if we cannot enjoy showing it off to the world?

All in all, we are certainly happy with this cooperation and delighted to have a chance to see the new Karl Lagerfeld for Maison Michel hats tantalizing the runway. It’s most certainly a treat and the milliner’s prestige most certainly has shot up tenfold with having headpieces designed by Chanel’s Métiers d’Art ateliers.
