My accessories collection is not what you would call minimalist. I love neck things and wrist things and ring things. And head things like this band by Deepa Gurnani. When you first look at it, it appears to be just plain pretty. But when you really look at it, its matte, ridged beads have a bit of an edge, which work nicely in a ‘do that’s wrapped and tucked and a little undone so it looks pretty, but not prissy.
The designer once beaded for Alexander McQueen and it’s worth taking a close look at the craftsmanship because each is handcrafted on vintage fabrics (the back of this is blue and white floral).
I spent a loooooong time picking the perfect Deepa Gurnani band at Libertine on South Granville and decided on one in platinum and black because I liked its night-sky feel. It’ll work just as well with winter wear as it will with summer dresses.
Especially worn in a boho-chic style with wrist things and ring things comme ça.
