Head Trip

Naomi Campbell,

Over the years, the fantastical creations of Philip Treacy, fashion’s maddest hatter, have tested the limits of the improbable. He has put a telephone atop Lady Gaga, a Campbell’s Soup can on Naomi Campbell (get it?), and a peacock on Emma Watson that was almost as tall as the actress herself. With photographs by the likes of Nick Knight, Irving Penn, and Bruce Weber, a new book, Philip Treacy: Hat Designer (Rizzoli) pays delightful homage to the work of an artist whose injection of wit and imagination made an anachronistic craft modern again.
