The latest collection coming from Maison Michel reveals a more extravagant and slightly dramatic, romantic and extremely elegant offering. Russian top model Sasha Pivovarova, French actress Clémence Poésy and English musician Anna Calvi star in the French brand’s fall 2011 lookbook, photographed by Karl Lagerfeld. The result? A combination of classical romanticism and poetic radicalism, a collection that superbly embodies aesthetic perfection.
Every single image in the Maison Michel Fall 2011 Lookbook seems to hide a secret, while the black and white technique adds mystery and depth. Take a peek and get ready to enter into a fabulous, bewitching, dreamy world where accessories are taken to a whole new dimension.
There is a wide range of accessories and headwear for every taste and style. All those delicate headpieces and full lace veils that rest on headbands adorned with metallic feathers reflect an amazing craftiness. There are masculine-inspired cashmere caps draped with chains and edgy spiked combs transformed into crests and beautiful tiaras proving that accessories can indeed be fantastic.
The new Maison Michel collection for fall 2011 is a proof that extravagance is not just for special occasions. You can inject some drama into your everyday style through pearl-adorned fur ear muffs and pillboxes of astrakhan, satin and lace, sprinkled with flowers, feathers and dark polka dots. Forget boring accessories and invest in dainty mini berets and top hats, and mischievous vinyl and PVC hoods with bear ears. Besides, borsalinos, trilbys and floppy felt hats complete the collection in the most romantic way ever.
Founded in 1936 by hatmaker Auguste Michel, the French brand created hats for the haute couture and prêt-à-porter collections of famous fashion houses such as Chanel, Givenchy, Nina Ricci, Laroche, Lanvin and Christian Lacroix. Every creation coming from Maison Michel is exquisite, alluring and classy. Currently, Maison Michel is working independently under the Chanel umbrella and their original pieces are crafted to order and made by hand not just for the legendary French house but also for independent clients and other important fashion brands.
