KEEPING UP WITH THE JONES:
Milliner Stephen Jones
has been the man about town during London Fashion Week — launching his first fragrance, unveiling his spring collection and revealing some tricks of the trade. On Monday night, a party was held in honor of his debut fragrance at London’s Dover Street Market, so it was no surprise revelers feted him by wearing hats. “I was going to wear a top hat, but I didn’t think it was right for the occasion,” said Belmacz designer Julia Muggenburg
, who opted instead for a painterly confection. “I was feeling very Rembrandt.”
Jones has also been showing his spring-summer lineup during London Fashion Week. Perhaps because his work will be the subject of an exhibition at the Victoria & Albert Museum come February, many of his latest designs take a nostalgic tack. Meanwhile, Jones admitted to putting his foot down while designing the crumpled boaters for Marc Jacobs
’ acclaimed fashion show in New York earlier this month. “We trod on them to get that flattened effect,” he said during the launch party Tuesday night for Wallpaper’s latest issue.
