Striking Headwear & Accessories For Divas!
Made for fashionista's who were born to be in the limelight, Janine Basil's inimitable headwear makes a bold statement worthy of your attention. No particular color is beyond the scope of her brand's characteristically vibrant aesthetic. The beauty of the collection lies in their conception - each piece is handmade by Janine in her London-based flat. The birthplace of her work is also her favorite place to be, it's quiet, cosy and gives her the freedom to be creative.
After a two-week intensive millinery course, Janine discovered that it was time to turn her passion into a career. Instead of settling for what other brands offered, she embarked on a journey to create avant-garde headwear that suited her own taste. Her unconventional sewing techniques have paved a way for her to freely experiment and establish her own, unique method. It's hard not to feel the passion that is injected into each design - her attention to detail is remarkable.
She draws inspiration from many different avenues but mostly finds herself intrigued by accessories worn by strangers in the street. The self-confessed film-enthusiast also draws on movie scenes in her work, especially those with thematic ties to her design aesthetic. She is especially drawn to the dress sense of female actresses of black and white films.
Her eclectic range offers a means of self-expression, reflecting the attitude of your alter ego. Immersing yourself in Janine's world isn't a one-time commitment, it's a marathon. The diva alternates between dazzling, glitter-accented headbands and speech-bubble hairclips, with a whole host of other, alluring headpieces along the way.
Janine only uses the most durable polyester felt, which she layers twice, to ensure that her designs can be worn repeatedly for years to come. The trademark surface-sheen of each piece gives you a wonderful glow that echoes Janine's intention - to create accessories that she is personally proud of and would wear herself with pleasure.View Janine Basil's Collection
