Stephen Jones & The Accent of Fashion, Signed
[Signed with Original Drawing] Jones, Stephen. Stephen Jones & The Accent of Fashion. First English Edition. 2010. Hardcover with a pictorial pastedown on the front cover (no dust jacket—as issued). It is in very good condition. Book is inscribed, “Dear Michelle, hats forever, Stephen Jones.” Above and to the left of the inscription, Jones has drawn a hat.
This well-produced book, the catalogue for an exhibition at the Fashion Museum Antwerp, is a confectioner’s treat, generous in both size and its vivid use of color. It features the work of British milliner Stephen Jones, whose imagination harkens back to Elsa Schiaparelli’s but with the craftsmanship practiced by Balenciaga. Contributors include David Bailey, Hamish Bowles, John Galliano, Anna Piaggi, Mario Testino, and many others.
