Description

Description: 

The Belgian company is specialized since 1986 in the design and manufacturing of Haute Couture hats, jewellery, handbags and other fashion accessories.

The elegant headwear that the company has created since the late 80’s has secured the Belgian milliner’s position as the go-to designer for members of a few Royal Families in Benelux and Scandinavia.
Its know-how has been rewarded since 2001, when it was initially awarded the official patent of "Belgian Royal Warrant Holder".

The company’s sophisticated and timelessly chic millinery has won its wide acclaim and it has collaborated with designers including known European luxury brands. Very imaginative, it likes to use different materials for the manufacturing of hats. It has for example created hats in crystal or chocolate and, more recently, it collaborated with car brand and created two hats for the launch of a new car.
It creates hats to enhance the beauty and confidence of the wearer and while each is completely unique, its name is synonymous with classic European elegance.
Reasonably eccentric, classic and elegant but still with a touch of originality, its fashion accessories are aimed to make a woman look more beautiful and more attractive.
The company's hats and accessories are handmade and realized in its designer’s studio in Brussels.
The new aim of the brand is to internationalize its products by selling abroad. The company is looking for international partner to develop the brand through new points of sale/distributors.

In the long run, another objective is the sale of the company to another enterprise active in the luxury market that will take over the company.
