Using radical materials and designs that range from refined to whimsical, Stephen Jones’s exquisitely crafted hats ignited a revival of British millinery in the early 1980s and today continue to attract stylish celebrities. Jones has also collaborated with legendary designers, including Vivienne Westwood, Jean Paul Gaultier, and Marc Jacobs. Published to accompany a touring exhibition, Hats offers an unprecedented view of the world of millinery. Drawing on Jones’s own archive and the V&A’s extensive collection, this vividly illustrated book examines the inspiration behind hat design, the history of millinery from the process to the materials to the workshop, and the etiquette of hat-wearing.
