..the gilded gutter
Autumn 2016 Winter
‘That dodgy never-never land, that hallucinated enclave, where we waited, consumed by angst, to cure today’s hangover by making certain of tomorrow’s’ - George Melly
Stephen Jones’ AW16 collection, is inspired by the bohemia of Soho; an eclectic collection of character driven millinery from a veiled feather cocktail hat for Muriel Belcher, the legendary hostess of the Colony Room, embroidered with the word ‘Cunty’ (her term of endearment), to a knitted beret for a St Martin’s student embroidered with crystal moths. For the Miss Jones & JonesBoy collections, Molly Parkin’s vampy turban is counterbalance by George Melly’s jazzy fedora.
