BLOW your mind

accessories are the key to life, as evidenced by this milliner's muse...


This milliner’s muse never failed to demonstrate why accessories are the key to life. Why love Isabella Blow other than her eccentricity, imagination and homage to the hat? Let me count thy ways…

#1 By sheer curiosity and will to discover, she brought us seven wonders of the fashion world: Philip Treacy, Hussein Chalayan (have you seen his line for J Brand???), Alexander McQueenJuergen Teller, Stella Tennant, Sean Ellis and Sophie Dahl.

#2 She paid her dues as Anna Wintour’s assistant before becoming Fashion Director of Tatler

#3 She had a secret, chic reason for wearing headpieces: ” …to keep everyone away from me. They say, ‘Oh can I kiss you?’ I say ‘No, thank you very much. That’s why I’ve worn the hat. Goodbye.’ I don’t want to be kissed by all and sundry. I want to be kissed by the people I love.”
