HAT THIEF: The extraordinary hat collection of the late fashion editor Anna Piaggi has been deprived of one of its most iconic gems.
On Wednesday, Piaggi’s nephew Stefano Piaggi said that in the last weekend of September the stiletto shoe-hat designed by photographer Bill Cunningham in the Seventies was stolen from the “Hat-Ology” exhibition, inaugurated at Milan’s Palazzo Morando during fashion week last month.
“We tried to keep this unpleasant event secret until the end of the exhibition, but it’s leaking out,” Piaggi said. “We reported the theft but we didn’t get any news yet.”
Curated by London milliner Stephen Jones, the exhibition, open until Nov. 30, showcases part of Piaggi’s large collection in a homelike setting.
