Put A Feather in Your Cap
Lately I have been seeing feather headpieces and feather adorned hats everywhere, especially among local Portland designers. These pictures are from the Content show last fall at the Ace Hotel in downtown Portland. The clothes are by Dutchess (http://www.duchessclothier.com/) and the hats are by Pinkham Millinery http://www.pinkhammillinery.com/. One of the best feather pieces I saw was in a small gallery at first Thursday in December; it featured an entire taxidermied bird head! Kind of gross but surely very pretty.
The trend can be found in high fashion too; Lanvin's models for Fall/Winter 9/10 were sporting short, choppy feather "hair" on the runway . So y'all better run out and get some feathers for your heads, stat!
