Marie Mercié


Marie Mercié
Previous work as an artist, journalist, and speechwriter preceded Marie's millinery career. She started making hats on a whim and opened her first shop in Paris in 1987.

Marie was born in the forest of Fontainebleau, and unsurprisingly, has a keen affinity with nature which seeps into her work.

She says that her hats are not part of a real, grown up life, and in making hats she continues to play and allow dreams.

Each hat is created in a French atelier, maintaining and reviving traditional techniques and practices.

Marie's styles are classically chic and elegant and are usually peppered with a dose of charming French wit.

This season woven materials are formed into graceful falling leaves, felt cloches add a ‘20s sophistication, pillbox hat add a Jackie O’ charm and the ‘Chamonix’ is revisited is an array of colours and fabrics.
