The X1 couture headband is a longstanding favourite design, working equally well as an everyday piece, as for special events. This version is in classic black velour fur felt. The individual pieces of felt are arranged and stitched together to create a flattering structure, attached to a tulle-covered wire headband. This headband can be worn either way around: one way frames the face with a slightly 1950s effect; the other way is a little more dramatic and provides more height.
Karen Henriksen’s couture creations combine traditional millinery materials and techniques with a fresh, contemporary aesthetic. Whilst often evocative of another era, these scultural pieces are distinctly modern. Many are one-off pieces, and all are very limited edition.
