Designer Philip Treacy British

Not on view

Mrs. Kempner's hats, though not an especially large group, are varied and distinctive. From vast brimmed straws, crisply sculpted fedoras, feather trimmed velvet tams, and grosgrain banded leathers, her millinery suggests the opportunity for dramatic effects. Some of the hats came as a part of a couture ensemble, others are by milliners associated with design houses, and, here in the Philip Treacy example, by hat-makers with their own well regarded labels.
