Definition of The Mad Hatter: Philip Treacy

Henrik Vibskov Hat

My obsession of hats lately has gone to the extreme. From the Henrik Vibskov number that a friend of mine referred to as my swiss cheese, to a top hat which makes me taller by six inches.  It’s my hatty watty moment that will soon pass, but until then, I might as well continue on my extreme hat high.

If you were to look into that special picture dictionary we all talk about, under the phrase Mad Hatter, guess who’s photo will be there.  Alice can keep hers in Wonderland because Phillip Treacy trumped the fairy tale a long time ago.

Nick Knight and Ruth Hogben collaborated with Philip Treacy to celebrate the attitudes and fabulous fashion Mr. Treacy showcased in September 2012 during London Fashion Week.  The result is a video titled Hatstand staring Grace Bol working the amazing headwear created by the M.H of fashion.
