I love when I get a press release that I actually enjoy. These stunning necklace and headband hybrids hit my inbox last night, courtsey of Summer Rej. Nothing tickles me more than a versatile piece I can wear everyday. Do I want to be boho chic today? Classic with a twist? Or rock goddess in training? I am dying to get my hands on one of these headbands, but holiday shopping (and that car thing...) has put a pretty little dent in my die hard fashion addict funds. Follow Dauphines on Twitter and check out their website! If you really LOVE me send one of these beautys my way!
Dauphines of New York luxury hair accessories: a collection of adjustable headbands that serve dual purpose - functioning as both headband and necklace. Designs feature an adjustable band to allow for this interchangeable function, while also providing tailored comfort of fit.
Dauphines of New York debuted via a series of trunk shows at BERGDORF GOODMAN. Trunk shows at HENRI BENDELaveraged sales of $1K-$1500 daily, with client base spanning ages 18-50. Select styles are currently available on www.shopbop.com. In addition, "Wild One" hair chopsticks by Dauphines are featured this month in ELLEMagazine's January 2011 Beauty "It List."
Currently, the brand holds an online presence via www.dauphinesofnewyork.com. Boutique stocklist is expanding, holding an exclusive mix of luxury retailers such as New York's Sucre and Kuwait's Melange boutique.
Prices retail from $70-$225, and materials utilized are of finest quality (natural Agate, Citrine, Turquoise and Amethyst stones, Swarovski crystals, weightless metal chains, minimalist mesh, classic pearls and tortoise toggle, woven leather and suede). When worn as a headband, many customers choose to wear the pieces 1920s flapper-style or hippie-style, though also possible to wear in standard headband fashion.
Hair jewelry will be a prominent trend this season, with decorative headbands increasingly ornamenting the hair of icons, models and celebrities.
