When we heard last Fall that Stephen Jones was collaborating with Rei Kawakubo to make his own fragrance, our reaction was kind of like, "Oh boy." But WWD has the results of the project this morning, and we have to say, it looks rather special. The bottle has a certain heft in its look that the Lovely's and Glow's of the world are missing. And the little hat box it comes in? Perfect for gifting. But of course, we've yet to actually smell the perfume, which Stephen, who's usually a maker of hats, describes as "a violet that's been hit by a meteorite," which sounds like the kind of one-noter that usually does pretty well. Stephen recently teamed up with Bumble & Bumble for a hairspray event, so we're also wondering if these are the beginnings of a Stephen Jones beauty division. The fragrance should hit stores next month, and we're still hoping he's planning on making the matching hat he talked about last September. The whole thing seems so very Stephen, actually, that we're kind of wondering - where was Rei in this one?
