Chinese Lunar Year Maison Michel, Chinese hats
Hats off to Priscilla Royer! The artistic director of Maison Michel, one of Chanel’s Métiers d’art brands, founded in 1936, pays tribute to China and the start of the Year of the Pig by reinventing two star items from its headwear collection – the New Abby cashmere hat and the Virginia felt fedora – now available in imperial purple. An aged ruthenium cap and a red satin headband have also been added to the Chanel family. These four designs are adorned with a small chain featuring a Chinese knot, adding a rock touch to this refined range of headwear.
