Maison Michel is a Parisian-based headwear brand that was found at 1936. Founded by French milliner Auguste Michel, the atelier is now owned by Chanel and is widely admired for its exploration of shapes and materials. These days, Laetitia Crahay (from Chanel) becomes the creative director of this brand.
