Maison Michel Spring 2012 Collection

Perhaps it was due to the Royal Weddings or Princess Beatrice that hats and fascinators became so popular, important accessories, which can dramatically change any look. However, one thing is for sure! It was exactly milliner Maison Michel, who revitalized the importance of headwear and proved that you don’t have to be invited to a royal wedding or English high tea party to wear some intricate headpiece. You can feel the Parisian whispers in every single creation by the renowned French fashion atelier and it is here that you understand that headwear isn’t just about hats. Small, medium, or big, all the options start and end right here!


It’s a sophisticated art, a real haute couture to design headwear, and this is definitely done at the best by Maison Michel. The history of the luxury brand dates back to 1936, when milliner Auguste Michel opened an exclusive shop on rue Sainte Anne in Paris. He was designing headwear for the high class ladies in town, and now, about 70 years later, the famous atelier makes all the hats for Chanel and occasionally comes up with its own ready-to-wear collections.
For the new warm season, the fashion atelier presents yet another charming cavalcade of to-die-for accessories, including fun hats, chic headbands, hoods and gorgeous veils. Shot by Karl Lagerfeld and envisioned by Laetitia Crahay as Artistic Director of Maison Michel and Head of Accessories & Jewelry for Chane, the latest Maison Michel spring 2012 lookbook is demonstrating the ‘it’-est headwear styles that will instantly spice up your outfits with loads of attitude. The campaign of the collection shows some of the most famous models of the moment dressed like Preppy queens, Cats, Posers, Sport Stars, Roller and Skater Girls.


The new Maison Michel spring 2012 collection is rife with iconic headwear styles, designed for people with different preferences and styles. Quite like the earlier collections, the brand keeps the neutral palette and denim as the main focus. No wonder, Laetitia Crahay was always inspired by go-with-everything hats that could be easily adapted to every wardrobe. It’s also vivid that she loves to design extra-original accessories, which can leave a surprising effect over any apparel. To this end, it’s impossible to stay indifferent towards those visors, boaters and rain hats that scream for attitude.
Chic headbands and veils featuring cat and bunny ears are sure to appeal to the rebellious types of girls, who like to emphasize their edgy and youthful side through their clothing pieces. You can easily turn yourself into The Pixie, Miss Bad Education, The Cool Cat or The Sweet Heart with just a single motion of your hand. The Maison Michel spring/summer 2012 collection presents a myriad of options to choose from. Step into the fabulous realm created by Laetitia Crahay and discover the power of headwear designs in injecting lots of attitude and personality into your signature style!
