THE VILLA NOAILLES
Maison Michel, milliner since 1936, is exhibiting a selection of hats at the Villa Noailles during the 34th edition of the Hyères International Festival of Fashion, Photography and Fashion Accessories. Its hats and head accessories – fedoras, caps, boaters, veils and bonnets – pay homage to Maison Michel’s exceptional craftsmanship and introduce visitors to some of its most beautiful creations. Staged amid a scenography that retraces the history of the Parisian house, the installation unveils what goes into creating hats, from initial sketches to the selection of materials and how they are brought to life in the Maison Michel ateliers.
