We spotted this furry black-and-white polka dot thingie on an e-commerce site this afternoon. Doesn't it look like a furry polka-dot breast? It even has a nipple. Anyway, it's made by Marc Jacobs in collaboration with someone else (also a famous designer person) and it costs $988. What do you think it is?
Answer: It's a pill-box hat made of dyed castor fur, with a black silk lining, and comb support. From the workshop of famous London milliner Stephen Jones.
