5.0 out of 5 stars Blow me, 5 Feb 2004
This is a truly indulgent book, equally as sumptuous as Manolo Blahnik's book of shoe designs.
It is a collection of photographs and beautiful illustrations by Hilary Knight, chronicling Philip Treacy and Isabella Blow's collaboration on over thirty hats, including her wedding hat!
It perfectly conveys the talent of Treacy, his ingenuity, his inspiration for several of his hats from everyday objects. There is an interview with both Philip Treacy and Isabella Blow-his muse. It tells you a little about both their backgrounds, Treacy's past at the Royal College of Art and how he started his business in Blow's basement. Isabella Blow is a creative director who has worked for… Read more

The film seems to dwindle along, and at points seems like it may have… Read more

Surprisingly, to me at least 100th Window had a pretty quiet release-not too much hype (sadly!) after the well rinsed but still class mezzanine. My point being that I think that 100th Window is their best album yet-proven by the emotive collaboration with Sinead O'Connor... I don't think they could have found a better vocal... she enevitably provides a haunting, eerie quality to the 3 tracks she appears on... cohesive with the rest of the album which is very intense at times! (think-listening to 'angel' from mezzanine, turned up far too loud!) But having said that... do not read it as 'scary, manic, dwelling music' although it can be, it pretty much suits any mood.
