UPPER WEST SIDE—Tomorrow, the Bard Graduate Center debuts Hats: An Anthology by Stephen Jones, an exhibit of headgear collected by the famous milliner. Toppers on display include designs by Philip Treacy, Chanel, and Yohji Yamamoto, as well as hats worn by luminaries ranging from Madonna to Babe Ruth. Sponsor Kangol also threw in a charity element, recruiting famous fashion types to decorate berets that were auctioned off last night to raise money for the Center's scholarship fund. Update: Turns out Bard recruited the designers; Kangol just donated the hats. [Racked Inbox]
