Here, Jones looks back on his memories of the Queen, from his first childhood sightings of her to the various times he crossed paths with her at Buckingham Palace soirées, and reflects on her powerful, enduring legacy within the fashion world. I think I was first aware of the Queen as a young boy in the mid-to-late 1960s. That was when she was taking many trips around the world, particularly to the Commonwealth, and I remember loving the fact that when she went to went on a state visit to Pakistan, she wore green, the national color. I thought, how wonderful that could be a motive for wearing certain things—that fashion didn’t need to be inspired by the magazines, it could be inspired by the place you were visiting, for example. I was very aware of that straight away. I also remember my grandmother had a book that she got at the coronation, a big sort of fold-out, which described the Queen’s Norman Hartnell dress in detail. I was so fascinated by the embroideries: there was a thistle for Scotland, the daffodil for Wales, and the shamrock for Northern Ireland. The idea of clothes representing certain places is, bizarrely enough, something that has defined my hats. They’re always about a place—even the collection I’m working on now is about Morocco.
Jones became part of the royal establishment himself in the following years, whether through his role as a go-to milliner for Diana, Princess of Wales, who was first introduced to Jones’s work by Jasper Conran in the early 1980s, or his appointment as an OBE in 2010. But his appreciation of the Queen’s style extends beyond the rarefied realm of royalty, with Jones even noting that when he was knocking around the punk scene or hitting up the Blitz club with the New Romantics in the late 1970s, their iconoclastic take on her style came from a place of admiration, too. “What we loved was the glamour, the spectacular jewelry, hats, clothing,” Jones says. “The fact that she was unapologetic about it and wore what she believed in.”
When I was growing up, the image of her was all-pervading. In the early ’80s, for example, the International Herald Tribune might publish one fashion photograph per day during the shows. I remember in The Telegraph and other newspapers, there might be two or three photographs or illustrations of fashion per week, and that would be it. That was the importance that was granted to fashion. So photographs of the Queen were some of the most prevalent photographs of fashion for years. The Queen was really the patron saint of millinery. The entire industry of millinery would not be what it is today without the Queen, there’s no question about it. Rick Owens or Jacquemus would not be showing hats if the Queen had not been wearing hats throughout her reign—because the hat became a symbol of fashion, where the volume or the presence is outside the norm. That’s why the Queen wore them too. The ultimate hat is the symbol of royalty: the crown. That idea of indicating status or splendor on the head is the language that milliners speak.
