Philip Treacy’s Fantastical Collection At London Fashion Week

Chapelier extraordinaire Philip Treacy is back on the runway of London Fashion Week after an absence of over a decade, with a highly-acclaimed collection in his classic bizarre-glamour style.

And if there’s anyone in the whole world who understands the importance of an eccentric appearance just like Treacy does, it’s none other than Lady Gaga, a big fan of the designer’s hats and fascinators, who was invited to open the show in a hot pink cape and Alexander McQueen sky-high footwear.

So, what are Treacy’s proposals for this season, for the woman who plans to make a statement by looking extravagant and stylish? Metallic fascinators in shiny silver and gold, or encrusted with a myriad sparkling crystals, dramatic veils in black silk with botanical-inspired embroidery, circular constructions that seem to defy the laws of gravity, feather fascinators, oversize Mickey Mouse ears and LED-illuminated hats.

Each extravagant piece from Treacy’s collection was brought to the runway on the head of black models, and paired with a genuine outfit from Micheal Jackson’s wardrobe, which the designer borrowed especially for his show, before it is set to go to auction in December.
