Okay it’s safe to say that for this summer at least I’m a Trilby girl but I couldn’t resist blogging about this gorgeous Phillip Treacy hat. The Irish Milliner ‘brewed up’ this beautiful creation, inspired by Irish Tea brand Lyons. The hat will be on display at Taste of Dublin from June 11-14, in a Mad Hatter-inspired marquee where visitors can enter a draw to win the hat!
The Galway-born fashion designer (pictured above with Model Klaudia Molenda in the design) said of the hat; “I grew up enjoying Lyons Tea, the tea evokes many happy memories of my life in Ireland. I wanted to create a hat that would symbolize how the tea swirls in the cup as it is poured, and how the leaves and tea bag infuse the water fortifying the brew. I think I have captured this in this very special commission, which celebrates my favourite tea. I am delighted that a fellow Lyons Tea drinker will have the chance to win my unique creation and enjoy it for many years to come.”
NB: Philip Treacy’s creations caused a stir when Sarah Jessica Parker wore this beautiful butterfly piece to the premier of Sex & The City in London last May.
