From Amazon.com: Book Description Published April 2011 “Fifty Hats That Changed the World lists the top 50 hats and headwear that have made a substantial impact in the world of fashion and design today. From Monomakh’s Cap, an early fifteenth century Russian crown to Franc Fernandez’s modern-day 2010 Helmet Headpiece, the book explores the designs that have turned heads over the years and the impact they’ve had on the fashion and design world. About the Author: The Design Museum’s mission is to celebrate, entertain, and inform. It is the world’s leading museum devoted to contemporary design in every form from furniture to graphics, and architecture to industrial design. It is working to place design at the centre of contemporary culture. It demonstrates both the richness of the creativity to be found in all forms of design, and its importance. Design is a hugely fertile field of inventive new work, as well as a key component underpinning the modern economy. It provides a means for understanding the contemporary world, and, potentially, for making it a better place.” The small hardback book also includes pages on the cloche, pillbox hat, Victorian bonnet, Philip Treacy and Stephan Jones. A great addition to any collection on fashion.
