HATS OFF: An exhibit showcasing the photography of Willy Maywald opens on April 6 at the Atelier-Musée du Chapeau, in Chazelles-sur-Lyon, near Lyon, France, a museum in a restored plant of French felt hat maker Fléchet. Titled “Willy Maywald, Hommage aux Chapeaux 1936- 1968” (or “Willy Maywald, Tribute to Hats, 1936- 1968,” in English), the show brings together some 60 photographs covering the late Thirties to the late Sixties.

Maywald was house photographer for Christian Dior and documented the work of all the major couture houses, from Christian Dior and Jacques Fath to Jacques Heim, including their hats’ creations. The exhibit runs through Sept. 15.
