INTO MISSONI… the 'Hat-ology" exhibition in Milan celebrates Anna Piaggi

During Milan fashion week, on saturday September 21th, an exhibition of the legendary hat collection of the late fashion editor Anna Piaggi, has opened at Palazzo Morando in Milan and will continue until November 30th. The exhibition, entitled “Hat-ology”, is curated by her favourite milliner Stephen Jones, who will guide the visitor through the editor’s life one hat at a time: from a McDonald’s baseball cap to creations by Schiaparelli and Chanel Haute Couture, but also featuring Jones’s own designs. The setting of the installation re-creates the style of her eccentric apartment in Milan, in order to give a real taste of how the style icon Piaggi lived. For this particular occasion are being revealed on Missoni Moments, some unpublished pictures from Anna Piaggi’s visits to the home of her friends Ottavio and Rosita Missoni.
