Author(s): Susannah Frankel; Stephen Jones
A charming chronicle of London milliner Stephen Jones's life and his exquisitely crafted hats that have captured the mood of every fashion "moment," from the electric 1980s to today. By 1980, everyone from rock stars to royalty, from Boy George to Diana, Princess of Wales, identified Stephen Jones as the milliner who would help them make arresting headlines. Jones's creative collaborations over the years have included partnerships with designers such as Vivienne Westwood, Rei Kawakubo, John Galliano, and Thom Browne. Stephen Jones: Souvenirs, written by Susannah Frankel, one of fashion's most informed voices, describes Jones's rise from London's street fashion scene to international runways, showcasing the magic, allure, and wit of his iconic creations. It also draws upon behind-the-scenes images, preparatory illustrations, and personal photographs and ephemera to tell the story of one of the most influential milliners of our time. Beautifully designed and engaging, this delightful volume traces the myriad ways that--from runways to racecourses, from pop promos to royal garden parties--millinery by Stephen Jones adds the exclamation point to every fashion statement.
