Philip Treacy: "When Philip Met Isabella".

Philip Treacy: "When Philip Met Isabella". By Philip Treacy, Isabella Blow and Hamish Bowles. Assouline, 2003. 80pp., 8.9 x 6.4 x 0.5 inches (hardcover).

Isabella Blow, one of the most inspirational people in fashion, is perhaps best known for discovering the milliner Philip Treacy (who's muse she also became) and the designer Alexander McQueen. With her sad early death on Monday a unique imagination and point of view have been lost.

Philip Treacy: "When Philip Met Isabella" is a beautifully put-together book. It has humorous, eccentric and vivid imageries - but I like above best: the sculptural beauty of the headpieces carried off by a unique personality.
