Behind the scenes

The making of ‘Stephen Jones & The Accent of Fashion’, Pt. 1 – The boxes

In Geert Bruloot’s design for the exhibition, the objects —both hats and complete outfits— are presented in and on top of enlarged models of hatboxes, which are precise reproductions of those hatboxes used by Stephen Jones Millinery: hexagons in form, lilac in colour, with silver logos. The giant hats and boxes in the exhibition represent the importance of playing with proportions in Jones’ work. These boxes were produced in collaboration with the Flemish company Europal Packaging.
