Universe - The Cherry on the Hat


« When I came back from Asia, my mind was full of colour.
Once in Paris, I wanted challenge the dull, bland black and grey uniform to bring colour into a very masculine accessory: hats ».

One September morning, Cerise pushed open the door to Gélot the hat makers on rue du Faubourg Saint Honoré and walked in on the arm of her grandfather.

A few years later, she decided to pay tribute to the fine figure of the passionate adventurer, who was the symbol of timeless style when she was a girl. Cerise chose to follow a training course in Paris to learn the techniques in creative professions and fashion.

Very quickly, the young hat maker confirmed her taste for masculine-feminine sophistication thanks to the shape known as the “Classic”, that was quickly produced in a range of surprising colours.

La Cerise sur le Chapeau came into being in 2007.
