“She wore blue velvet
Bluer than velvet was the night
Softer than satin was the light
From the stars”
In David Lynch's film Blue Velvet, the sumptuous Isabella Rossellini performs the eponymous song on a music hall stage.
The feathers of the collection echo the sensuality and glamour of this scene; worn on the ears or around the neck, they make the wearer shine.
Blue Velvet was made in 1986 and is still considered one of the greatest films ever made. It is a testament to post-war American society.
