The lovely Carlotta wears one of our hand made ‘halo’ hair wreaths, designed and created in our Soho atelier by Kelima, several months ago.
A few days ago, we were stunned to discover a variation of our design, in this image from Vogue, shot decades ago. The item from 1969 appears to employ the same sewing techniques, using similar materials. These materials would be difficult to determine without seeing the actual item. This makes the coincidence all the more intriguing.
If anyone knows who designed the hair ornament in the second photo, please contact us, and we will post credit here.
