Milliner Stephen Jones — the man behind the pimp-meets-Mad-Hatter headgear in the fall 2012 Marc Jacobs show — says he started working on the 60 oversize hats back in November. "Marc had this idea about the face being surrounded by volume and about beauty," he told Vogue UK. "We researched Edwardian shapes and Veronica Lake shapes." Jones designed hats for Victoria Beckham this season as well, and, back in London, he did toppers for Issa London, Giles Deacon, and Kinder Aggugini. He will also present an exhibit on hats titled "Headonism" at Somerset House. So, in case you didn't already know, hats are definitely  happening.
