Inspired by the illustrated “The Birds of Paradise” by Clifford B. Frith and Dawn W. Frith and children’s picture book “Feathers for Phoebe” by Rod Clement, Paris Kyne’s latest millinery collection looks towards the wonders of ornithology.
On the fancy (and sun-drenched) terrace of Madame Brussels, just-as-fancy ladies transfixed viewers in their couture hats.
The range relies heavily on rare vintage egret feathers and ostrich feathers as Paris urges wearers to be concious of the origins and impacts of their fashion choices; specifically species that have become endangered or vanished entirely due to our penchant for certain plumage.
