As Stephen Jones' Hats Hit The High-Street, We Talk Headwear Icons: EXCLUSIVE

Ever since the Duchess of Cambridge began flaunting her impressive array of headwear, Grazia Daily has caught hat fever. So what a treat to have master hatter Stephen Jones bringing his millinery beauties to the high street. Yes, the designer launched Top Hat, a collection of 21 hats and six occasion bags, at Debenhams this week so we took the chance to discuss all things headwear...

Grazia Daily: What were the challenges of making and designing these pieces while keeping a budget in mind?

Stephen Jones: The challenge was to make sure they looked perfect quality at a reasonable price and we did that by clever design and expert production.
 
Grazia Daily: When it comes to formal occasions, what do you think are the pitfalls or main mistakes a girl can make when choosing a piece of headgear?

Stephen Jones: Not trying everything on, and not thinking of how your hair will be dressed for the occasion and trying the hat on to fit accordingly.
 
Grazia Daily: What do you think is the most modern type of headwear right now?

Stephen Jones: I think something small and neat with a romantic touch.

Grazia Daily: Who is your hat-wearing icon?

Stephen Jones: Her Majesty.
 
Grazia Daily: Which of these pieces could you see Kate Middleton in and why?

Stephen Jones: All of them because it’s a combination of Parisian chic and British charm.
