When Rihanna’s “S&M” video first debuted, it garnered a lot of attention because of its eye-popping colors and very risqué outfits and scenes. Rihanna is no stranger to controversy and I am pretty sure that she intended to stir up some drama, since the song is about a very taboo practice after all.
Though totally taken from works of David LaChapelle, the fashion in the video was original and quite amazing. In it, Rihanna wears a slew of raunchy looks that are both playful and unique. Her accessories are what really impressed me, including a very fun Cherry Headband and a Leather Heart Eye Patch.
Piers Atkinson is a well-known man about town, who literally does everything from millinery to being a fashion editor. He created his debut collection of fantastic headpieces during his downtime to relieve stress and he came up with amazing pieces that the likes of everyone from Rihanna to Anna dello Russo have worn. The Cherry Headband is adorable enough to make a statement at Fashion Week or for a night out. You will definitely strike up a conversation.
The Leather Heart Eye Patch that Rihanna rocks might not be as wearable, though definitely just as fun. Here in New York City, anything goes so why not try it and turn a few heads? It is another great piece from Patricia Field.
Piers Atkinson’s Cherry Headband retails for $450 and Patricia Field’s Leather Heart Eye Patch for $58. Visit www.patriciafield.com to purchase and if you need a little refresher, watch the “S&M” video below.
