London born Parisian Anthony Peto moved to Paris in 1986 and eventually formed an alliance with Marie Mercié. Along they way, the duo produced one of France’s most popular and well known purveyors of women hats. In 1992, Anthony began his own exploits within the company to create his own brand. His focus on traditional fabrics also utilized subtle details to create a contemporary series of hats. The hand-made hats are made to ensure proper shape and fit for the customer. Available now at oki-ni.
