Black White Leather Crown is a classic black and white symmetrical crown made predominantly in plaited leather with one side black Japanese Obi silk and the reverse side white leather.
This elegant headband Crown is called “Lynne”. It is a structured squared profile shape. The name is an ode to Anne Boleyn of Henry VIII fame. This “Lynne” shape is reflective of the structured crowns worn in the era of Anne Boleyn and English traditional medieval millinery minus the veil and trappings. This elegant and simplified modern take on a medieval hat shape is just so clever.
This black and white example of “Lynne” is fully reversible. You choose to have the black or white side to the front. The white side is in a glossy soft lambs leather. The black side is a black satin silk taken from a Vintage Japanese Obi. (An Obi is the silk belt that wraps around a Kimono).
The squared off crown is 7cm in width. Rows of plaited black and white leather are in perfect symmetry around the whole crown. The underside of the crown is finished in more of the black Vintage Japanese Obi silk.
It has a built in headband and will fit smaller heads.
Requests for an additional headband and/or combs/elastic fitting are possible. A detachable veil could also be attached if required.
This black and white piece would be the perfect crown for the Derby Day Races during the Melbourne Cup Carnival.
Black White Leather Crown is 100% Australian made by Wendy in her Melbourne studio.
