The V&A Present Stephen Jones

The hotly anticipated exhibition of the spring is about to commence at the Victoria and Albert museum.
The V&A comes up trumps again as South Kensington plays host to the inspiring exhibition; ‘Hats: An Anthology by Stephen Jones’ on 24 February in which influential British milliner Stephen Jones explores the cultural and historical importance of millinery.
Whether a beret, deer stalker, Russian, beanie, top, bowler, boater, fedora, panama or trilby, we simply can’t get enough of the coolest of all accessories and it seems we’re not alone in this feeling. Be inspired by hats throughout history, couture classics and celebrity finds.
Hats are a great in so many ways; they hide a multitude of sins, give a quirky twist to an outfit, provide a quick solution to bad hair days and let you stand out from the crowd. My choice for the summer, a cool fedora; what would be top of your list?
