Be Sure To Wear Flowers (Or Horns) In Your Hair-------
What indie princess’ wardrobe is complete without a statement headpiece? Enter Chase Cohl, the 23-year-old one-woman show behind Littledoe. Cohl handcrafts custom clothing and accessories from unique materials—everything from moss branches and Moroccan metals to bird pelts—as well as plenty of haute hippie headgear. The headpieces, which are apparently quite popular with L.A.’s bridal set, as well as Cohl’s raw crystal jewelry, plumed hats, and floral lingerie, belie a lifelong fascination with American Indian culture. The antler crown (above) was inspired by the indigenous mythology behind mystic animal hybrids, in this case a deer-woman. Littledoe, which Cohl started after a friend was photographed in one of her floral hair wreaths, has been featured in Vogue España and The New York Times, and Erin Wasson is a professed fan. But Cohl is a singer-songwriter foremost and plans to keep Littledoe on a small scale (all the more reason to stock up now, we say). Next week, www.littledoeislove.com will be equipped for e-commerce; it’s available now at Church boutique in L.A. and the Black Tag in Manhattan. Prices range from $300 to $1,000.
