Benoit Foucher was born in Saint Germain en Laye in France. From the age of five, Benoit showed a great passion for drawing and painting. He studied styling and model making at the school of Chardon-Savard in Paris between 1997 and 2000. During these two years, he created unique pieces for the Gallerie Simone.
Benoit then proceeded to launch his own luxury hats by creating his Eponym brand. His creations are distributed at Maria Luisa’s, Frank et Fils, as well as Onward in Paris and at Baycrew’s in Japan. In 2005, he became a professor at the School Mod of Art International during which time he also wrote for the website La-Couture.com.
The year 2014 saw the return of the Benoit Foucher brand with an A/H 2014-15’s collection presented at Nouvelle Affaire boutique in Paris. The brand has a strong underlying duality. Benoit Foucher has reinvented the traditional shape of the hat. Every model is hand made with noble material, in small and numbered editions. Traditionally, hats are molded on wooden forms.
The Benoit Foucher products are available in Leather, Seamless, for a ‘Made in France’ quality.
