Two heritage houses have teamed up on a cross-channel collaboration, as Scottish outerwear brand Mackintosh releases a capsule hat collection together with Parisian milliner Maison Michel.

The two storied houses have a lot in common - both create products made by highly skilled craftsmen and are experts in their respective fields. Each of the hats in the pre-fall 2016 collection have been handmade by Maison Michel, using the signature Mackintosh waterproofed rubber bonded cotton fabric, and then finished by hand in Scotland with rubber and tape.

The capsule consists of three unisex hats: a fisherman's hat, a flap cap and a bucket hat. Each has the signature Maison Michel saddle stitch and is embossed with branded rivets. Maison Michel x Mackintosh will launch in June, when the brands will also release a short film by filmmaker Terence Connors to show the collaboration in motion.
