Philip Treacy’s Hat Exhibition at Elements

Hold on to your hats.


Elements, Hong Kong’s high-end shopping centre on the West Kowloon side, is celebrating National Day (and the venue’s own 2nd anniversary) with an exclusive Philip Treacy exhibition. The exhibition will feature a number of Treacy’s personally selected classic designs and a range of exclusive anniversary souvenirs for Elements shoppers.

Philip Treacy, milliner to the stars, is a true master of his art. In his hands any medium, from feathers to paper, metal to wood, is molded into cutting-edge fashion. His sculptural, avant-garde hats have adorned the heads of everyone from Victoria Beckham, Madonna, and Sarah Jessica Parker to Lady Camilla Parker Bowles as she walked down the aisle in her royal wedding.

Some of Treacy’s most famous couture designs include the Butterfly Afro worn by Naomi Campbell on the cover of UK Tatler, and the showstopping peacock hat that Sarah Jessica Parker wore to the London premiere of ‘Sex and the City.’

Check out his Autumn/Winter ready-to-wear collection, at, for some covetable head-toppers.
