Maison Michel

"Chanel belongs to Maison Michel, an elegant, exclusive Parisian hat brand. Laetitia Crahay is responsible for Chanel's accessories collections, and now the group have made her artistic director at Maison Michel. Auguste Michel created his own hat brand in 1936, and by the eighties the brand was designing hats for brands like Lanvin, Chanel, Givenchy and Nina Ricci.
In 1996 Chanel took over the French brand, and in 2006 they started creating pret-a-porter collections, which were a big hit.
Now, to optimise their brand image for this fall winter 09 season, the brand have collaborated with their good friend Karl Lagerfeld, who created the lookbook.
Karl brought in the top faces from the Paris fashion scene, making the new catalogue a showcase of the contemporary modelling world. Olivier Theyskens, Milla Jovovich, Sean Lennon, Lou Dillon, Sasha Pivovarova, Olivier Zahm, Lara Stone and Erin Wasson come together to create an eye-catching campaign for this exceptional French brand."
