This Chanel-owned milliner has become cult issue for fashion editors from Berlin to New York – but not so much for its straw summer hats destined for holiday sojourns, it’s the brand’s signature felt Virginie, Andre and Henrietta styles that have made it the go-to fashion hatter for all seasons. And in spite of being stocked in limited numbers and colourways at some multi-brand retailers globally, there is something extra special about visiting Maison Michel’s Rue Cambon abode that’s situated just a few doors down from Coco Chanel’s former home. This is a hatbox to proudly carry onboard the plane home.


Housing the Louvre, Jardin des Tuileries, Musée des Arts Décoratifs, Place VendômePalais-Royal and perhaps Paris’ most famous style strip rue Saint-Honoré, the 1st arrondissement is situated principally on the Right Bank of the Seine. As one of Paris’ oldest areas it also showcases some of its most spectacular public buildings, hotels, restaurants and gardens.
