Philip Treacy | Haute Macabre

Philip Treacy

It is pretty much impossible to look at a picture of a model wearing a rhinestone crustacean (see Rock Lobster, below) without wondering who would make such a bizarre and lovely thing. The answer is Irish Milliner Philip Treacy , who’s work has popped up on runways for Alexander McQueen and Karl Lagerfeld.

Fact: this hat cannot be seen on radar

Erin is a web developer and lover of tiny dogs, ghost stories, and too much eyeliner.

  1. Just thought Id drop you a line to tell you your site really rocks! I have been looking for this sort of information for a long time.. Just stumbled upon your website while doing a Google search. Great info BTW. great great.

  2. The stealth hat I would actually wear out. I like the lines and the simplicity…it would be versitile as an evening piece, I think.

  3. For one of my first modeling gigs are age 16, I wore a Philip Treacy hat provided by the designer — I had no idea of his significance back then, and now I adore his work. For shame…
