Janine Basil is a London-based designer who makes the most fabulous retro hats, headpieces, and hair accessories by hand. If there’s a special drama queen in your life, or if you want to unleash your own inner Lady Gaga this holiday party season, look no further than the studio of Janine Basil. Here are a few of her awesome designs.
The Pow! Comic-inspired headpiece is smothered in rhinestones, with “POW!” spelled out in blue on a background of clear and black rhinestones, every single one of which is applied by hand. You can get it attached to a hair comb or an elastic to go around your head. All you have to do is step into the room wearing this to inspire major envy and awe!
The Silver Glitter Bow Headband is just the thing for a retro style or an Audrey Hepburn updo. It’s actually beautiful enough it could go with a simple column wedding gown – seriously! And at only $21 it’s a real steal.
The Red Velvet Heart Fascinator is made from red silk velvet that has been hand ruched (no easy feat), and it’s finished with a youthful white daisy. It is attached to a headband, and will be just the thing come Valentine’s Day 2011.
Want to own that big New Year’s Eve party? The Burlesque Queen of Hearts Crown in ruby red glitter will take care of that for you. It’s also built on a base of plush, cream faux fur! It is attached to a headband so you can get it just right with your ‘do.
