Book Description

22 Jan 2009
Stephen Jones spearheaded the revival of British millinery in early 1980s fashion. Using radical materials and designs that ranged from refined to whimsical, his exquisitely crafted hats encapsulated a modern and compelling mood. Today Jones' era-defining edge continues to attract a celebrity clientele with Marilyn Manson, Kylie, Dita von Teese and Gwen Stefani all donning his hats. The roll-call of fashion designers with whom he has collaborated includes Vivienne Westwood, Jean Paul Gaultier, John Galliano for Dior, Marc Jacobs, Rei Kawakubo of Comme des Garcons and Giles Deacon."Hats: An Anthology" offers an unprecedented view of the world of millinery, drawing on the V&A's extensive collection of hats, Stephen Jones' own archive and iconic headgear from around the globe. Beautifully illustrated chapters examine the inspiration behind the creation of hats, the history of their construction, the lure of the hat shop and finally the etiquette and occasion of hat wearing for the client.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic collectors book 24 Aug 2012
A very beautiful coffee table book that I found incredibly delightful to read.
If you are interested in either fashion or magazines then this is the book for you.

Each chapter covers a different topic such as the editor and publishing background, photography and artistic design, fabrics and consumer marketing. It's a real look behind the workings and history of a trade magazine in the post war years.

The best part is undoubtedly the photographs, many of which I have never seen before. Black and white portraits from the magazine, full colour original advertisements and marketing material and behind the scenes photographs of the artists at work are all here. Plus they have details of the Ambassador archive at the V&A that you can visit and see in person.

I would recommend this book to anyone with an interest in fashion or textile history, marketing, magazine publishing or photography.
