Philip Treacy - Philip Treacy unveils Orchid hat collection

Picture:

Philip Treacy has designed a capsule hat collection inspired by Orchids.

The legendary hat-maker - who has styled the likes of Britain's Duchess Catherine, Madonna and Lady Gaga - has created a trio of ornate headpieces to celebrate the 'Day of the Orchid' and his love of the flower.

The milliner jumped at the chance when he was first approached by Dutch orchid cultivators, explaining: ''When the 'Art of Life' approached me, I immediately answered positively. Orchids are my favorite flower and they are often a source of inspiration for my collections. For inspiration for the new hats, I invited the cultivators and their orchids into my studio. I was overwhelmed by their diversity of colours, shapes and patterns.

''I was initially intending to design one hat, but I found that it did not reflect the beautiful variations of the orchid. Because of this, I decided to design three hats, based on the three orchids that grabbed me the most.

''The white Phalaenopsis, through its simple and elegant blossoms in combination with its radiant white colour. The blue Vanda, because it is one of the most striking orchids and in my opinion, it is one of the most evolved. And the yellow Oncidium, which is known as the 'dancing orchid,' because some of its flowers resemble dancing dolls and some of its flowers look like a shower of gold. Each orchid has its own unique character and they truly inspired me.''

The 'Orchid Hat Collection' is currently available for order via the Philip Treacy studio.

Philip has also been honoured with his very own namesake flower, the Philip Treacy Orchid, just in time for the second annual 'Day of the Orchid', which celebrates 'The Queen of Plants' diversity and beauty.

This year, everyone is welcome to chat with the orchid cultivators on the 'Day of the Orchid,' through the 'Art of Life' website: www.orchidsinfo.eu or via Facebook.com/OrchidsinfoUK
