Maison Michel's creations might not be displayed at Paris Fashion Week, but the faces of some of the most popular international runway models fill its catalogue.

And the atelier's relationship with Chanel is so strong – artistic director, Laetitia Crahay, is also an accessories designer for the French label – that Karl Lagerfeld himself served as the photographer for the fall-winter catalogue.

Top models Kate Moss, Milla Jovovich, Sasha Pivovarova, Lara Stone and Lou Dillon have all donned embellishments from the legendary Parisian firm, which produces hats, tiaras and hair accessories.

From mini bowler hats to pretty, unique veils (available at online luxury boutique net-a-porter) and feather and lace creations, Maison Michel designs are coveted by women around the world - especially brides. 

The company is renowned for making every season's collection a true object of desire, and for this spring, talented illustrator Cédric Rivrain was enlisted to produce ten prints of models posing with the label's lastest trends and accessories.

The most indulgent women can order custom portraits, but getting lost in the pages of the new catalogue is enough to leave all with a never-ending wish list.
