Product Description

Review

'lovely .. all the most iconic designs are here'
The Observer

'How did one man change our minds on headgear? Philip Treacy by Kevin Davies celebrates [...] backroom moments of Treacy's career, no less striking than the headpieces he creates ... the unseen stories behind all the 'moments'.
The Independent

'an usually revealing insight into the designer's work'
Harper's Bazaar

'revealing [...] photos of Treacy at work. He looks determined and serious, but he has a kind face and he's never a poseur. .. In short, this is a cool book about a great guy.'
VICE

'The head-topper extraordinaire gets a tip of the cap in the new book. . .featuring over 200 images of the milliner's museum-quality lids, including head-turning snaps of mega-fierce singer and Bond villainess Grace Jones.'
InStyle

'Inside the pages are 200 intimate pictures covering everything from Treacy's years at 69 Elizabeth Street to the scene backstage at fashion shows to the dignified funeral held for Treacy's beloved Jack Russell terrier, Mr. Pig.'
The New York Times Style Magazine blog

Excellent book that takes you behind the scenes of probably the top professional milliner in the world. He lets us into his Aladdin's Cave workrooms where he concocts the most extraordinary and exquisite headwear creations. We also get to see the millinery delights created for the catwalk. Philip's hat blocks are beautiful art forms in their own right.
It is fascinating to see the development of Philip's work throughout the years as he continues to take millinery far beyond anything imaginable.
Wonderful photography features throughout by Kevin Davies who was allowed privileged access to the milliner over a long period. This is one of my favourite books and even if you are not a milliner, as I am, you will enjoy the journey.

These aren't the fabulous hat photographs you see of Mr Treacy's hats in magazines but more of a behind the scenes look at the design and work that makes a fabulous hat. With (nearly) 200 photographs this book is wonderful but what's so delightful are the personal notes by Mr Treacy and Mr Davies explaining the story behind the shoot.
My two favourite photographs are one from 1991 for Vogue, when Kevin first met Philip (and rejected by Vogue.) The second is Philip helping Naomi Campbell get ready for her first visit to Ascot.
This is a biography in pictures of one of our most outstanding and inspiring fashion designers.
