I bought this navy veiled beanie designed by Stephen Jones for Jil Sander at the Paris boutique during Paris fashion week and I’ve been wearing it almost every day. It’s one of my favourite purchases this season and I’ve gotten major mileage out of this (very) expensive hat. I regret not buying the white one. What’s annoying is that it took an amazing genius like Stephen to come up with the idea of combining something so terribly banal (beanie) with something so chic (netted veil). The result, is, phenomenal! I can’t believe no one ever thought of it before and could’ve sold it for a friendlier price.
