Sacrilegious Chic: A Jesus-Inspired Headband Of Thorns

comments



Jesus chic isn't exactly a new concept—what's up Lanvin gladiator sandals—but, aside from those gnarly Teenage Millionaire shirts, looking holy hasn't exactly been affordable. Now, thanks to NYC-based milliner Gigi Burris, you can get in on redeemer radness for less, courtesy of this $125 "Headband of Thorns," an exclusive collaboration with retail site Ofakind.com. "Givenchy did something before, but I think this is the more accessible one," Burris tells us. That's not to say price decreases quality; the hat designer used "an old millinery technique" where she knotted Biot feathers, creating a stiff, star-bust effect that channels J.C.'s own crown of thorns. Sold in a limited-edition of 15, the phrase "no pain, no gain," comes to mind.
