Top That

While some may argue that the shoes make the outfit, there is a passionate accessories contingent that swoons for sombreros. These beret and derby devotees will love the new exhibition at London’s Victoria & Albert Museum, “Hats: An Anthology,” opening Feb. 24. Couture milliner Stephen Jones collaborated on the project with V&A fashion and textiles curator Oriole Cullen to bring together more than 300 chapeaux dating from 600 B.C. to the present. “It was wonderful to have Stephen’s technical and practical knowledge,” said Cullen of her partner on the project. “The dynamics of the fashion world and the museum world are quite different, so it was an interesting journey to be able to create something that is rooted in two very different approaches.” Jones, a favorite among daring designers including Marc Jacobs and John Galliano, has several of his own creations on display in the show (see image at left from Tatler magazine). The homage to headgear runs through May 31.
