Sara Lowes is the creative passion behind Animalesque and is responsible for designing and handcrafting every piece. The bespoke collection of headdresses have been made exclusively for the Royal Opera House, recreating the magic and romance of classical ballets such as Swan Lake, The Sleeping Beauty and Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Each headdress combines Sara’s own accessories with fabric from the Royal Opera House costume archive, capturing the essence of the onstage performance forever.
The Squirrel Headdress reimagines the scenes from the Queen’s Court in Alice in Wonderland, providing an authentic recreation of the drama of the ballet. Beautifully intricate with flawless detail, the Squirrel Headdress is made of fabric from the Royal Opera House archive and features a striped lining, adding softness and comfort to the striking design. Tied with a wide satin ribbon, the Squirrel Headdress brings real character to any occasion and looks wonderful displayed on the wall as a stunning piece of home decor.
