Courtois Paris: when a family shares a passion for hats and gloves

Small accessories with a strong impact on one's attitude, hats and gloves celebrate their fashionable comeback in the most beautiful tradition.

Imagine a lady entering the room, her head covered with a hat… a style which instantly adds a touch of mystery, a timeless elegance and an absolute femininity. Hats have never really been out of fashion, and certainly not in Paris, where every fashion-conscious girl knows the importance of these essential accessories. Just like the three ladies of a Parisian family who decided to create a house offering the most beautiful hats, carefully crafted by a highly skilled artisan.

Each Courtois labelled hat tells a different story and the selection is absolutely stunning, but there is one rule for all of these pieces: the design and quality have to be impeccable. With this fundamental premise in mind, the Courtois ladies introduce the necessary fun, chic, style and practicality to each of their creations and showcase them in their two Parisian boutiques, located in Le Marais and Saint-Germain-des-Prés. Since hats are also appreciated by all generations of men, be it the classic gentlemen who always wear them or the new hipsters who appreciate the playful style signifier, the brand also includes a highly distinguished men’s section. And to satisfy the desires of the most demanding customers, the house of Courtois includes a bespoke section for those who dream of a truly unique custom hat.

With such a passion for traditional and timeless accessories, it is not surprising that the designers wished to include a beautiful range of gloves, which are another essential part of an elegant and worldly wardrobe. Several types of the finest leather are used to translate the idea of a functional and stylish pair of gloves, for every season, winter and summer in a large colour palette. Ensuring that every visitor of the boutique will find his or her dream accessory.
