Willy Maywald’s Topped Shots

-------

Perhaps best known for serving as Christian Dior’s house photographer, the late Willy Maywald documented French couture and culture with unfussy black-and-white photographs from the 1930s through the 1980s. He had a particular affinity for capturing hats, and WWD reports that on April 6, the Atelier-Musée du Chapeau (a felt-hat plant turned museum in France’s Chazelles-sur-Lyon) will celebrate his talent with Willy Maywald, Hommage aux Chapeaux 1936-1968. The show will feature Maywald photographs of toppers by the likes of Madame Paulette, Jacques Heim, Jacques Fath, and, of course, Christian Dior.

Willy Maywald, Hommage aux Chapeaux 1936-1968, will be on view from April 6 through September 15 at the Atelier-Musée du Chapeau.
