Our latest fashion obsession? Hair accessories. Especially when they’re handmade with premium fabrics then doused with Swarovski crystals and pearls, by none other than Alice and Blair. New on the scene yet quick to win our hearts, accessory brand Alice and Blair are modern artisans responsible for luxurious, handcrafted headbands, hair slides, accessories and earrings. The brand has cleverly found a balance between luxury and affordability, comfort and stylishness, giving everyone woman the chance to join the Alice and Blair family.
Founder Deidre O’Flynn’s life-long obsession with hair combined with binge-watching episodes of Gossip Girl with her sister led to the brands creation. With Blair Waldorf as a firm fashion influence, a business-savvy Fiancé and plenty of late nights, Alice and Blair began importing and reselling goods. Once the brand had generated more money, they began to delve into design. Their own collection, ‘Design by Alice and Blair’, is the home of unique, beautifully feminine accessories crafted from superior quality velvet, silk, gold plated sterling silver and semi-precious gemstones. Having only launched in January of this year, the brand’s well-deserved success has seen their products worn by influencers and celebrities alike, including TV personality Georgia Toffolo and model and Instagram star Jess Hunt. As the business grows, reinvestment has allowed for new collections that are consistently charming. We can’t wait to see what’s next for Alice and Blair. And on their behalf, watch this space. XOXO, Gossip Girl.
