found this headband on etsy. want it, desperately.

 

it reminds us of manish arora‘s spring/summer 08 show. especially his finale, a magical gown covered in technicolor butterflies. when the dress emerged, it made everyone in the room stand up and cheer; we suspect you would encounter the same reaction if you strapped on this headband and went, uh, anywhere.

then again, arora’s designs tend towards the psychedelic (we can very easily imagine tom wolfe describing said gown in the electric kool-aid acid test) whereas the headband is sorta sophisticated and stately. for the brave, but not too brave.

 

we think isabella blow would have approved.
