The hat is the natural extension of the woman, the final touch that completes an outfit or makes a subtle silhouette
It may be cold and wintery where you are right now, but in Paris all eyes are turned to Spring/Summer 2014. Here is the Laurence Bossion Look- book collection to give you an eye on what will be offered in hats fashion when the winter has passed.
To Laurence Bossion, the hat is the natural extension of the woman, the final touch that completes and sublimates a subtly studied silhouette. Hailing from the city of Marseille, Laurence Bossion grew up surrounded by elegant inspirations. Fate brought her the first hat. Nestled inside an old truck bought at auction, Laurence discovered an 18th century velvet (faluche), which she promptly relined.
Her love of made-to-measure and a keen eye for luxurious materials were the premisses of her creative identity. After studying at the Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne, and being initiated in furs at the Saga International Design Center, Laurence collaborated in the ateliers of Christian Dior, Torrente and Guy Laroche before completing a degree in Fashion Management at the Institut Français de la Mode.
To her, detail is essential, and this expressed itself in the collection she presented at the final of the Courtelle competition: an Emma Peel inspired set, for which she created custom shoes and hats.
Laurence opened her boutique and atelier in 2007 on 10 rue Saint Roch, steps away from the Tuileries gardens, an intimate boudoir where her chosen materials are free to express them-selves and where her creativity knows no bounds, as her clients come to her to create bespoke pieces for many occasions.
Her creativity and love of refined materials make her a sought-out milliner whose talent is being recognized by French and international press. Laurence Bossion creations grace the pages of publications such as L’Express Style, Numéro, Gala, L’Officiel (France), Antidote, Vogue Italia, Glamour Italia, Pashion (Egypt) and many more.
