Hats in Champs-Élysées & Grands Boulevards

Founded in 1840, beret maker Laulhère still supplies the French army with the iconic headwear. Handcrafted from soft, durable and water-resistant merino wool, varieties range from plain to jewel-encrusted versions. The boutique is hidden within a courtyard off rue du Faubourg St-Honoré.

Berets were originally worn by shepherds, and later artists and the military, with Laulhère instrumental in reviving them as a fashion item.
