Well the Missus and I trundled up to Salem yesterday to catch the Hats exhibit at the Peabody Essex Museum.
And you know what?
Hats is a hoot.
The exhibit, according to the PEM website, “[explores] the delightful realm of hats – wildly plumed bonnets, silk turbans, sequined caps, embroidered crowns, Sarah Jessica Parker’s lime-green fascinator and 250 other elegant and sometimes outlandish styles. Displayed with the wit and whimsy of British milliner-to-the-stars Stephen Jones, Hats reveals the boundless creativity of hat design and our own fascination with wearing these indescribable works of art.”
Go see the rest for yourself. They’re well worth the trip.
