Milan Tips Its Hat To Anna Piaggi


Anna Piaggi

From her tiny top hats to stacked bowlers to sculpted, plumed creations, Anna Piaggi‘s chapeaux are nearly as well-known as the late Italian editor herself. And this fall in Milan, they’ll be getting their own show. Curated by her good friend and milliner Stephen Jones, the exhibition, titled Hat-ology, will open during Milan fashion week on September 22 at the Palazzo Morando, reports WWD. The headpieces will be displayed inside a re-creation of Piaggi’s Milan apartment, thus giving viewers a sense of the eccentric editor’s lifestyle. Featured toppers will include everything from a McDonald’s baseball cap to Chanel’s couture headgear—a range that speaks to Piaggi’s singular, and inventive, approach to fashion. Piaggi, who died last August at the age of 81, once told the International Herald Tribune, “I feel better if I have a good hat on.”

    The good people of Seattle would like to point out that, like any scorned lover, they’ve moved on from blaming the ex to getting really defensive about things being good with the ex and then blaming the ex’s crazy family.
