What’s the most iconic ice lolly?
Perhaps you’re partial to a Mini Milk, or you’re a diehard Twister fan.
In the world of fashion design, however, it’s the classic Fab that reigns supreme.
That’s according to high fashion hatmakers Bundle MacLaren Millinery, who have created a fascinator that mimics the sections of strawberry ice, cream, and chocolate dipped sprinkles, attached to a pink silk headband.
The ‘hand-carved foam lolly’ has a beaded topping and is covered in Orissa silk, justifying the £225 price tag at John Lewis.
One thing to note: the faux lolly does have a bite missing.
The designers reckon it’s the perfect option for going to the races or a wedding, but we’d vote donning it for every barbecue, or to charm the man driving the ice cream van.Yes, £225 might be a bit much to spend on a hair accessory, but you could always take inspiration from the design and work up a DIY version.
To be clear – don’t just stick a Fab ice lolly to your head. It will melt, and your hair will get sticky.
The product description describes the fascinator as a ‘truly unconventional headpiece’.
It’s clearly proved popular, as the item is currently sold out on the John Lewis website.
Here’s hoping this micro-trend trickles down to more affordable high street retailers.
We’d like to see ASOS selling Solero, Feast, and Calippo hairclips in time for summer.
