This design originally came about while working with Melbourne photographer Mad Dame, we we're thinking of ways to add to her sparkly uniform and wanted to create a fun garment that could easily be worn every day!
New for winter 2019 - Velvet. Continuing Ariane's love affair with velvet, we couldn't resist adding it into our hoods. It's exceptionally soft against your skin and has a magical drape when worn on the outside. When combined with sequins it's an amazing mix of textures too.
The front has hand pressed metal eyelets and a heavy chain to hold it in place and stop it flying away in the wind. The front of the hood is finished with a lip that you can flip from the back to front. This covers the eyelets and keeps the garment looking perfect whichever way round that you wear it.
Note about wearing sequins with your hair: Many people have asked if wearing sequins against your hair will mean they get stuck. The ones Ariane uses are always very soft and won't matt your hair - in fact when you wear the sequins on the inside they look like a geode which can look amazing!
This hood is Ariane's signature shape - oversized to provide a really nice cover while laying nicely over your shoulders when down. This garment is unisex and at the ready for anyone to wear
Handwash only with cool water, dry flat and out of direct sunlight. Due to the nature of this fabric, some wear of the sparkles may occur
