How one manages to become the Artistic Director of a fashion hat house like Maison Michel?

Hat is a support as the others. For sure millinery is not my background, but Maison Michel introduced me to crafts of this very special industry. Sometimes I lean on the technique of the Ateliers to develop a piece, and sometimes I give free rein to my imagination and I see with them how make things possible.

Any hat icons ?

I don’t want to drop any name in particular, because I don’t want to lock myself in a specific style. There is billions of stereotypes and choose one style rather another one would be too frustrating for my creativity. 

Are there heads for hats and not?

Everybody has a head for hat, you just need to find the right style. For sure there is a hat that matches with your facial ovale or your jawbone ! People are often afraid of being ridiculous or too much by wearing a hat, but it’s just about being self confident.

What is the hat trend of the moment?

I will say the baseball cap and a small hat with short edge.

Do we need to wear an hat for a wedding ?

It’s really depend on the type of wedding ! An hat can pimp a silhouette or twist it…

One mistake one shouldn’t commit regarding hats ? 

Wear it if you don’t need to wear it.

Pro or con the bob ?

100% pro ! Whether it is to protect oneself from the sun in summer or in town for the style … There are lots of ways to wear it: with a turned up edge in front or behind, in a “cloche » way, or as a shady boy. Everything (as always) is a question of styling.
