Royal Ascot Fashion Show 2011-Stephen Jones

The Royal Ascot Fashion Show would not be complete without a display of headwear and Stephen Jones, the official milliner for Royal Ascot in its tercentary year doesn’t disappoint.

The show featured a mixture of his SS11 and AW10 collection.
Spirits Drifting
 SS11 titled ‘‘Drifting and Dreaming’ was partly inspired by the work of mid century British (from Derby) painter Marion Adams.  Above is his hat named Spirits Drifting. (yellow blouse by Jasper Conran)

Whilst creating this collection he thought of the composition of a painting:
The background – ambient hats, a wash of shade
The midground – driftwood, flowers
The foreground –surrealism, scrollwork

Aftermath - Loosely tied large bow on a skull cap with diamante horns. Named after Adnams 1946 most famous painting titled ‘Aftermath’ with horned animal skull and large ribbon. The painting sold at Christies in 2006 for £2,200.  Pale blue dress by Issa

the Distraught Infanta
The Distraught Infanta. Named after and replicating the loose curved folds in Adnams 1944 painting of woman made of curved folded paper.  Jones’ uses hard metal decorated with tiny little stars. The metal reflects colour from the bright red dress by Issa.
