Laetitia Crahay for Maison Michel

Continuing on the theme of headpieces I came across a little  blurb in this months British Vogue and upon further investigation (well a google search) I came across these.  It is an advertising campaign for French Milliner Maison Michel and was shot by Karl Largerfeld.
The pieces were designed by Laetitia Crahay who oversees accessories design at Chanel,  Maison Michel  is one of the ateliers now owned by Chanel.
"I myself would never wear a big hat so I like the idea of small, easy-to-wear items and jewellery for the hair-subtle and elegant every-day pieces" Laetitia tells Vogue
I love the little monogrammed M on the piece on model Anouck Lepere above.
but I think my favourite is the one of Laetitia herself with the little lace bunny ears.
There is a slight eccentricity about them, no? and each image is like an individual portrait as opposed to an advertising shot, this may be because, of course Mr Lagerfeld would know these characters: Lou Doillon, Sasha Pivovarova, Erin Wasson, there are others which I have not included of designer Olivier Theyskens and Lagerfeld muse Amanda Harlech. There is an intimacy in them usually reserved for portraits that I feel, is a big part of their success.

  1. These are wonderful and tie in with my musings of late on Bohemianism inspired by recent posts on Loulou de la Falaise. I especially love the third down. And, of course, the bunny ears. Marvelous!
