« Monsieur Jacques, Jacques Pinturier – famous Parisian milliner » at the Chapellerie Hat Atelier and Museum, Chazelles-sur-Lyon.
Defining himself as an artist, Jacques Pinturier reinvented the hat by experimenting with daring, even eccentric shapes, for events including the Prix de Diane and Ascot…
as “the Hat Master”, he created headwear that took on the appearance of sculptures. Starting out in the family atelier, he launched the idea of half-moon veils, then veils moulded around a headdress. It was in 1968 that he opened his own atelier on rue Cambon, where he served a primarily private clientele, all-the-while working with collections by couturiers such as Jean-Louis Scherrer, Molyneux, Christian Dior, Balenciaga and Schiaparelli. Having retired in 2013, he made a substantial donation to this Atelier-musée du Chapeau/Hat Atelier and Museum.
