Anne Holm Alexandersen
Looking at Anne Holm Alexandersen’s unique pieces reminds me off sitting in a gallery and looking at portraits of 17th century aristocrats, whose sumptuous clothing is topped off with elaborate ruffs. Anne Hole Alexandersen’s couture collars are made of individual leather pieces, which have been cut by hand to resemble feathers. These leather feathers are then layered, resembling a bird’s plumage or even fish scales.
Apart from creations to adorn the neck, the Norwegian designer, who started out as a shoe designer, have applied her technique to brooches and intricate headpieces. My favourite of her made to order pieces is a large black leather collar. The amount of ‘ feathers’ layered shows of the designer’s craft beautifully and the black leather reminds of early Gaultier and Mc Queen designs, making use of the details of bondage wear.
