More information
Jean Barthet was a French milliner who first rose to prominence in the 1950s as hat maker to Hollywood and French film stars. He also designed hats for films. He helped to define fashionable hat styles – including the bucket hat, pillbox hat and fedora – that predominated throughout the 1960s and collaborated with major couture houses: Chanel, Sonia Rykiel, Karl Lagerfeld, Kenzo, Gianni Versace. With a career spanning more than 40 years, he remained a favourite hatmaker of Sophia Loren, Brigitte Bardot or Jacqueline Kennedy. He created hats for Michael Jackson's 1988 world tour. His great passion was photography, which he devoted as much time as he devoted to fashion. The most appreciated were the portraits of artists, movie stars and stage stars.
