Obsessing over: Philip Treacy hats

The British Milliner, Philip Treacy

It’s the week leading to the royal wedding and what better way to celebrate than to dedicate this week to all things royal!  One thing that I love about the British Royals is their love for flair!  They rock gorgeous hats and crown jewels that are amazing!  And who designs the royal fascinators?  None other than the visionary himself, Philip Treacy.  A well-known milliner in the UK for not only donning the Royal’s with avant-garde headpieces; he has also teamed up with Couturier’s including Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel, Alexander McQueen and Giorgio Armani Prive.  His popularity continues to rise in the US and his hats have been spotted on such famous faces including Sarah Jessica Parker, Kate Moss and Heidi Klum.  Philip Treacy even appeared on the hit show “Project Runway” where he served as guest judge and challenged the designers to create an outfit that complimented their specific Philip Treacy hat.

So the next time you’re in London, forget about buying postcards, shirts that say “LONDON” and various other nick nacks, but instead opt for a Philip Treacy hat ( I know I would!)  If his price point is a bit too steep for you, there are a few on Etsy that are stunning!  In the meantime, I’ve got to find the perfect fascinator to wear with my dress for Friday’s wedding!  Didn’t you hear, I was cordially invited to attend the (televised) royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton? 😉

Sincerely, Kymberly
