A Winter Fantasy with Velvet Antler

December 27, 2010

The December 2010 issue of W Magazine featured a dreamy photo shoot entitled Family Circus featuring women and children in snowy scenes with animals, a nod to the Chronicles of Narnia and the magic of the classic winter wonderland.  Most of the headpieces in the spread were by Velvet Antler and they stood out as wild, bohemian accents to this lush fantasy world.

I just had to look up the mad faerie behind the headpieces, Tessa Morehouse, to see what other wonderful creations she has wrought.  Take a peek….

I love her use of color and the way her headpieces don’t look forced.  As natural as the shed antlers Ms. Moorehouse found as a child, these headpieces look like something you might find in an enchanted forest just in time for a masquerade ball.  Wonderfully quirky, hauntingly beautiful, ironically introspective… Velvet Antler’s headpieces make you want to shed your modern clothes for a flowing tunic and play hide-and-seek in the woods.
