J Smith Esquire

When someone wears a hat, it always seems to give that person a bit more of personality. You can wear an edgy outfit, but if you add a hat, a different person arises. I had the pleasure to attend the J Smith Esquire exhibition as part of London Fashion Week at The Royal HorseGuards Hotel last night. I have been a fan of his work for about two years now, so at the sight of a free ticket to see it at first hand, I jumped on it. Despite the fact I desperately wanted to stay in, but who can say no to those sort of things.
I think making clothes is an art, Menswear is a very special one, but the art of millinery is unique. A mind can wonder off when making something of that sort. As my colleague and I floated around the hotel admiring the work, we both thought, “where could you wear them?” Its all so theatrical and playful once you see them on a person. Maybe thats why I admire them even more, a small piece creates a whole other play.
