Maison Michel Fall 2011 Lookbook

Maison Michel Fall 2011 Ready-to-WearMaison Michel is a millinery atelier that was purchased by Chanel in 2002 as a part of PARAFFECTION, a solution to keep haute couture ateliers alive.  In doing so, Chanel is keeping a rich legacy of knowledge and tradition intact and preventing fashion techniques from becoming lost arts, as well as ensuring that haute couture remains robust.

Maison Michel makes all of the hats for Chanel but also releases its own ready-to-wear collection.  The Fall 2011 collection just released and the look book images are beautiful.  Shot by Karl Lagerfeld and featuring Clemence Poesy, Sasha Pivovarova and Anna Calvi, the simplicity of the black and white images is juxtapozed against the intricate details of the head pieces. I love the lace headbands, the spiked headbands – really I love every piece.  There’s something for different looks and occasions.   I also love that Maison Michel specializes in millinery and that is how Coco Chanel herself got her start.  Check out the look book…
