MAINS DE VAPEUR
MDV suggests a contemporary approach on millinery design. Through meticulous craftsmanship, the juxtaposition of felts and hardware, an eclectic use of materials — from the most extravagant to the most subtle variety of shapes — we create unique headpieces to complement our customer’s personality.
As a work of sculpture, each hat is hand molded through clouds of steam to reach an aesthetic asymmetric complexity. Every piece, dignified by its own identity, thrives to relate and create an individual, personal connection with the wearer. These organic, asymmetric and unconstrained forms are delivered through an artisanal process heightened by an impeccable use of high quality materials such as wool, rabbit and beaver felts, as well as Ecuadorian toquilla straw.
We pride ourselves on the sentiments of expression that can transform an attitude when we dress in a work of art. MDV encourages us to transcend that which is visually appealing into authentic emotions, knowing that this is all that matters.
