Happy St. Patrick's Day! In honor of all things Irish, I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to highlight Irish milliner Philip Treacy. Based out of London and perhaps the world's best known hat designer, he has been credited for changing the perception of the hat and I am thrilled he has.
Here are some of his more well known pieces above, but whether you love them, hate them or they just leave you scratching your head in bewilderment, his creations are lively, full of imagination and I find them a feast for the eyes. My only sadness is that there are so few opportunities to wear a hat as fanciful as his in the United States. Wearing one of his amazing chapeaus is definitely on my fashion bucket list. Below are a few of my favorites from the spring/summer '16 collection.
