Philip Treacy Hats
The incredibly talented Philip Treacy has designed hats for many celebrities including Queen Elizabeth and Lady Gaga as well as many Haute Couture houses such as Chanel, Givenchy, Alexander McQueen, Valentino, Helmut Lang, and Versace. The great news is that right now you can get your own work of art for Derby Day at Peacock Boutique on Frankfort Avenue in Louisville KY!
I had so much fun shooting with these exquisite pieces last Monday morning with photographer Dennis Ledford in their chic Frankfort Avenue store that we turned in a temporary studio. The collection they have received this year is breathtaking. Nothing that I have seen has screamed class and sophistication louder. Each hat has such attention to detail and rich color - It is almost impossible to choose a favorite! (but if absolutely HAD too, I suppose I may pick the purple one with the hot pink flower... no wait... what would Gaga do? Hmmm.) Both dresses I photographed in were from Peacock Boutique as well. Make a point to get there as soon as possible for the best selection. There are only ONE of each style!
