Renowned Irish Designer Philip Treacy has collaborated to create these LED hats by Moritz Waldemeyer.

The structure of these hats involves six blades that are fitted with a strip of LED light and attached to a propeller headpiece to create the appearance of glowing light. This futuristic design makes for the most stunning visuals that marry old world millinery creations with futuristic technology.

This blend makes for coveted avant-garde designs that glorify what is to come from a futurist aesthetic. Perhaps the most bold creation by the Waldemeyer-Treacy collaboration is a floor-length cloak that, according to Dezeen, is made up of 6000 LED lights weaved in to the structure like a basket. Each of these millinery creations is fantastical, as it toys with imaginative shapes, technology and design.
