HATS OFF: The eccentric hats of the late Italian fashion editor Anna Piaggi will go on display during Milan Fashion Week in September, WWD has learned. An exhibition entitled “Hat-ology” and curated by milliner Stephen Jones is to open to the public Sept. 22 at the Palazzo Morando and feature everything from a McDonald’s baseball cap to Chanel couture creations.

According to Jones, Piaggi would make every hat her own and “try them on back-to-front, upside-down, pin on a jewel, add a veil.”
