MaryMe-JimmyPaul Redefining Feather Fashions

MaryMe-JimmyPaul Redefining Feather Fashions is almost an understatment… They are totally taking it to a whole nother planet! Using a large variety of Marabou, Ostrich, Chandelle and Goose Feathers MMJP’s creations are Met Gala and museum worthy. Marie Burlot and Jimmy Rinsum, the designers behind the over the top MaryMe-JimmyPaul describe their label as an “area that exists between art and fashion…”

We believe that fashion can be more than just an article of clothing. We want to tell a story with our collections and sometimes, creating big sculptural statement pieces is the best way to express our stories. Also, we graduated from the Rietveld Academy, a modern art school in the Netherlands that has also been a definitive influence. – www.notjustalabel.com/editorial/maryme-jimmypaul

We’re just gonna post some of our favorite tumblr pics… scroll through and let it simmer. We feel like we’ve died and gone to feather fashion heaven!

Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children, one of my favorite reads is finally coming to the silver screen! We can’t wait to see Penny Dreadful’s Eva Green transform into the black feathered Miss Peregrine in Tim Burton’s adaptation of the book. We especially love the movie trailer below where you see Miss Peregrine’s full metamorphosis! Set to be released this September, we can predict that Miss Peregrine’s character is sure to be a hit this Halloween season! You can transform yourself into Miss Miss Peregrine with a pair of our Black Feather Mockingbird Wings and Black Feather Collars and Chokers.

Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children

Burton described Eva Green’s character Miss Peregrine, the headmistress of the peculiar orphanage, as a “weird Mary Poppins like character — a strong and mysterious person who looks like she could turn into a bird. That’s Eva.” – www.moviepilot.com
