Hats Off


Philip Treacy has literally made headwear into art with his intricately, exquisitely crafted millinery. The Irish designer’s work and studio can now be seen in a stunning new book out from Phaidon. It collects images from Treacy’s official photographer, Kevin Davies, giving a glimpse into his beautiful work for top fashion houses (Alexander McQueen, Chanel, Valentino), films (Harry Potter), celebrities (Lady Gaga), and international royalty. His surrealistic, incredible creations are shown in their full splendor, alongside catwalk shots and behind-the-scenes views – like his studio overflowing in feathers and fluff in preparation for the royal wedding (shown above).
