1. Starting off with the exceptional Philip Treacy. I mean lets face it, we could do a whole entire blog post about Treacy alone but here we have one of our favourite statement pieces ever, from London Fashion week, Spring 2015. Lucky for us, Vogue have already beat us to it with every look from one of Treacy's most talked about shows ..Londons Spring Summer 2013. Check out the link below for camouflage net hats that cascaded down and down; sculpted horn hats; conch shell-shaped hats; nightmare mask hats; all-encompassing curled, coiled and snail-like hats; feather creations; Tricorn hybrid hats; ships-that-had-floated-ashore-onto-a-head-hats; Minnie Mouse ears; blingy-silver wide-brimmed hats; Merry-go-round and carnival set-up hats; helter-skelter and bright light hats!! It is SUPERB!
2. Next up we have Junya Watanabe at Paris Fashion week, Fall 2007.
After a season of dressed-up eighteenth-century dandy formality, Junya Watanabe took it down again for Fall, returning to rework a different classic register—biker, instead of Beethoven. (He called it "Romantic in Black.") Essentially, it was a show of little riffs up and down the scale of fabric and construction/deconstruction, the sort of riffs that have become familiar at the house of Comme des Garçons over the years—i.e., stiff leather (real and fake), overdyed viscose, school-uniform knits, polka dots, asymmetry, and the hybridization of garments.
It wasn't one of Watanabe's confrontational punk war cries—more of a teen-rebel look with a softer side. This is for a girl who will pull on a flower-print dress (albeit one she's boil-washed with several loads of black) with her leather jacket, a shrunken cardigan, and a pair of pointy biker-cum-Western boots. In many dresses, the cardigan was fused in and wrapped at the back, sending the frock's pretty lines of tucks and minute ruffles off-kilter. Overall, there was plenty to appreciate, such as the way Watanabe manipulated those unbending leathers: here, to make a zipper ripple down the front of a jacket to echo a frill-front shirt; there, to pick out a fitted fishtail of Alaïa-like seaming in the back of a waisted coat. Look at this as a collection of young, casual separates, and it doesn't take any leap of imagination to see how these pieces will sell, but then again, this wasn't one of those Watanabe shows that provokes its audience to think any big thoughts.
Again Vogue winning an easy click with the link to this "Romantic in black" show stopper:

5. Last but certainly not least we are giving you Valentino's Fantasy- Laden, Autumn Winter 2019 realness and we are more in love than ever!! Fringing, tassels and pom poms abounded!!
Models wore headdresses comprising thousands of curiously spun yarns, bedecked with pom poms and tassels in a manner that, Vogue's critic Anders Christian Madesen observed, "felt Berber" but also "a little Sámi." At other points in a jaw-droppingly diverse collection, the yarns took the place of feathers. As Piccioli told Madsen in a preview: "I love this idea of all people: a combination of identities. It’s not place-specific. It’s not about ethnic. It’s about roots and identities, but I love the embrace of different cultures together. It’s about humans."
