“I think wearing a hat finishes a look, draws a silhouette,” milliner Anne-Sophie Coulot says. Based in Paris, Anne-Sophie brings her energy, style and sense of humor to this art form. Though many of her hats are for special occasions, Anne-Sophie has introduced a more casual selection: “For the winter season, I made some pieces for every day life, little berets and cute kennedys to wear with a long coat, a jean and black high heel shoes.” It is clear the she is inspired by the styles of the 1950s, but make no mistake: These hats aren’t meant for ladies who lunch. “I want to make hats for a ‘femme fatale:’ sophisticated, independent, unpredictable and living in the moment.” These are the glamorous women depicted in art made throughout the late 19th and mid-20th Centuries. “I have often been inspired by Gruau's illustrations and Grün's advertising posters,” Anne-Sophie says. “These drawn posters, [take us] back to a specific atmosphere of the fifties: The high size skirts, red lipstick, jazz and glamour style.” Anne-Sophie’s hats are vintage-inspired treasures for very modern women.
