    Background: ALTHOUGH THE MILLINERS COLLECTIONS OF PARIS AND LONDON HAVE ALREADY BEEN SHOWN TO AN ADMIRING PUBLIC, FROM PARIS THIS WEEK HAS COME SOMETHING EVEN MORE ASTONISHING: WIG-HATS.

    THEY'RE NOT BEING MADE BY THE MILLINERS BUT BY JACQUES DESSANGE, A LEADING PARISIAN COIFFEUR. THE BASIC IDEA OF THESE RATHER EXTRAORDINARY HATS IS THAT ANY KIND OF HAIR CAN BE ADDED TO SUIT EVERY OCCASION. IF THE SUN IS SHINING, A BLONDE PONY TAIL MIGHT SUITS; BUT IF IT'S RAINING -- WELL A FEW BRUNETTE LOCKS, AND NOT TOO FLUFFY.

    AT PRESENT DESSANGE'S HATS ARE ONLY MADE OF STRAW -- BECAUSE THE WIGS ARE EASIER TO ATTACH TO STRAW, BUT IF HIS IDEA SPREADS HE MAY WELL BRANCH OUT INTO OTHER MATERIALS.

    THE MILLINERS HAVEN'T REACTED YET TO THIS NEW IDEA -- THEY MIGHT START STOCKING WIGS. BUT PERHAPS THEY HAVE NO CAUSE TO COMPLAIN: FOR MANY LEADING MODELS THIS YEAR WERE USING WIGS TO ACCENTUATE THEIR NEW HATS.
