Our portfolio: discover the diversity of our hatdesign
In the world of couture everything is allowed – as long as it is made masterly by hand, is unique and unforgettable. The avant-garde to make heads turn is created in Nicki Marquardt’s Munich studio according to this credo. Every hat and every headpiece is an individual masterpiece of the highest quality materials, techniques and looks.
Our creations are couture in perfection. With innovative production techniques and creative styling we conjure up the surprising and never-seen-before. Sculptural shapes appear to float; exquisite and unusual materials form exciting symbioses – and dreams become reality.
For those with a mind of their own. Just like couture from Nicki Marquardt.
Finding your real self again – sometimes extravagant and expressive, other times gentle and enchanting, always out-of-the-ordinary and striking.

We design two prêt-à-porter collections a year that we present in spring and autumn at the most important international accessories show – the Première Classe Tuileries in Paris.
Always on the lookout for new materials, techniques and stories, each of our collections is unique. From summery rose gardens to street cafés, or from the Italian beach to snow-covered forests, Northern Lights and glittering parties: our ideas send your head off on a new journey every season.
Enjoy our light straw hats, informal fedoras or festive headpieces in summer and keep yourself protected in the winter by our warm felt hats, cosy knitted beanies and caps.
Our current collections are available around the globe in more than sixty leading fashion and concept stores. On request, every model from previously published collections can be made individually for you in our Munich workshop. We look forward to your enquiry.

The patented foldable hat collection from Nicki Marquardt has established a new category of hat: practical to take with you and flexible in how worn. This innovation won the renowned Red Dot Design Award in 2012 and was nominated for the German Design Award in 2014.
No wonder, as wearing a hat has never been so uncomplicated and spontaneous as with our ‘Foldables’: the clutch hats for summer and winter, for example, are as compact as a handbag when folded; a casual fedora when open. ‘Rollables’ fit into a handbag and turn into cloches. ‘Pack-its’ made of straw can be transported flat in a suitcase and worn in a wide variety of different ways thanks to their concertina structure.
This ability to be modelled into different shapes is characteristic of the whole ‘Foldables’ collection. From the classic men’s hat to the casual cap – all models can be styled individually and give any informal outfit a distinctive look. They accompany their wearers everywhere – either on the head or folded up in a coat pocket or suitcase. And they can put up with quite a lot.

There are many reasons for a very special hat or a breathtaking headpiece – from a dream wedding or the races at Ascot to a red-carpet event.
And whatever idea you have in mind we can turn it into a reality. In Türkenstrasse in Munich we are happy to assist you at any time and look forward to helping you make your wish come true: with detailed advice, individual measuring and execution, precisely as you had imagined.
Hats imbue strength and self-confidence: for that grand entrance and, of course, for everyday wear. The portfolio of our bespoke hats embraces individual models for weddings, stage shows and events as well as made-to-measure headware that conceals the hair completely – a wonderful alternative to wigs or for religious reasons.

Our hats and headpieces love the public stage: they can be found time and again, caught in the limelight in both the theatre and in film, in advertising or at fairs and events.
Huge cowboy hats for a commercial by the travel portal TRIVAGO or a showpiece for Osram GmbH Germany’s trade fair stand are part of our repertoire just as much as the creation of fashion accessories for the ‘Cartier, Cartier’ gala event organised by the famous french jeweller.
Production for theatre productions are also included in our portfolio as, for example, the manufacture of hats for the Passion Play in Oberammergau in 2000.
Of course, we make and hire out couture hats, headpieces and fascinators for shootings and the editorials of international fashion magazines, on request.
