Fashion Icons: Philip Treacy

30 Jun


Whether it’s a metallic feathered headdress designed for Prince Charles’  spouse, Camilla Parker-Bowles, or a crystal-encrusted lobster made for fashion  editor Isabella Blow, Philip Treacy believes good hats stir emotions. “It’s all  about how it makes you feel,” he said recently. “I like hats that make the heart  beat faster.” The Irish milliner has helped make mad hattery mainstream by  designing eccentric, eye-catching headpieces for Givenchy, Chanel, Ralph Lauren  and Donna Karen, among others. Thirty-six guests wore his creations to Prince  William and Kate Middleton’s blockbuster royal wedding, including Victoria Beckham military pillbox hat) and Princess Beatrice (a widely mocked flying  spaghetti headpiece). Sometimes garish, frequently beautiful, Treacy’s work  rarely fails to turn heads.

I personally don’t know the big “whoop-di-do” with these hats but ladies seem to love them. Ladies here is your beginning inspiration..
