Anthony Peto, chapelier terrible

I remember walking the roads around Les Halles with a friend a few years ago and entering by accident the playful, hats-crowded atelier of who seemed to be a “mad hatter”. I fell in love with the design, the unusual combination of fabrics and colors, helped my friend choosing a hat and saved in my wallet the pink flyer I was given. A place and a name to remember. At that time I didn’t know I had bumped into the atelier of the well-known, star-system followed millinier Antony Peto.
“Hat wearing is an expression of attitude and I always try to examine the different nuances: cocky shy, faux modest, devil may care-devil will care!” Anthony Peto
