Just a pile of hair, a smear of makeup and perhaps a pair of sunglasses? Snooze. Something’s missing. Something epic and strange. Something deliciously outlandish. Something royal. You need a hat.
Imagine hitting the farmers’ market in a fascinator that resembles a head of green-leaf lettuce, or impressing Mandalay Bay’s sharky residents wearing a bouquet of neon seaweed. Picture sidling up to the counter at Raku Sweets adorned with a modernist dessert in shades of vanilla, or posing for selfies at Red Rock under a wide-brimmed sand dune.
Now you can, thanks to the newly opened Wynn Collection boutique, the first place in Vegas to carry hats from famed Irish milliner Philip Treacy. His wearable sculptures—which run $1,500 to $6,000 and up, depending on customizations—have graced the craniums of Lady Gaga, Sarah Jessica Parker and Princess Kate. Which means even if you feel like there’s a veggie sprouting from your head, you’ll be in some very fashionable company.
