Hair of the Dog

Miu Miu, Prada, Louis Vuitton and Jean Charles de Castelbajac have brought a catwalk stampede of elephants, monkeys, swans, giraffes and leopards along with them for Spring/Summer 2011.

But the animal instinct doesn't appear to stop at clothing..........I bring to you Japanese artist; Nagi Noda!

The multi-talented Noda uses mold and wire mesh to carefully create enchanting animal hair weaved sculptures on to her models.  Okay, perhaps this animal-inspired look is maybe taking things a little too far but you have to admit, it's fascinating nonetheless.

There doesn't appear to be any animal shape that Nagi Noda hasn't crafted into a beautifully obscure hat of hair.

What do you think?

Take a look. The poodle is definitely my favourite.

Nagi Noda unfortunately passed away in September 2008 but her short films, commercials and sculptural creations remain as timeless, cutting-edge works of art.
