Partner Service: Next Shoot London
A small hat, a decorative object, a piece of information, a finishing touch. For Stephen Jones, a London-based milliner, wearing hats is about communication. It’s about people sending messages to each other, and also, themselves. Stephen Jones believes that a good hat is a mixture of function and fantasy, and sometimes its function is to be fantastical. What are the references for his creation? What sort of hat represents him? Fashion Insiders has come to Stephen Jones’s millinery boutique in London, and his favorite place——the Royal Pavilion in Brighton, to discover the stories behind hats.
