Jennifer Behr introduced her namesake collection of luxury hair accessories in 2005. After majoring in sculpture and art history at Washington University, Jennifer honed her skills by creating custom headpieces at a small millinery shop, which was to be the start of a very exciting career for the designer. She soon went on to create a hair accessories collection for celebrity hair stylist Frederic Fekkai, under contract with Chanel. When Fekkai discontinued the hair accessory line, Behr was encouraged by a buyer at Bergdorf Goodman to start her own collection. The success of this ready to wear accessories line resulted in the launch of her bridal collection two years later.
Since 2005 Behr’s collections have grown to include seductive headpieces and belts all with their own unique appeal. Her designs manage to be strong and on trend whilst remaining utterly sophisticated and completely functional. Materiality has always been the main focus for Behr, setting her apart from others in her field. Swarovski crystals set in dark metal and hand-stitched to ethereal silk chiffons, hand-braided nautical rope patterns, thick satin turbans, supple French leathers and, at times, super tough studs and chains combined with traditional handiwork details and construction techniques brings a truly modern sense of femininity and glamour to her work.
With Jennifer Behr creations gracing the pages of fashion bibles including Vogue, W, Elle, i-D and Numero, plus a cult celebrity following from the most stylish stars such as Alexa Chung, Rachel Bilson, Charlize Theron, Lady Gaga, Natalie Portman, Lauren Conrad, Nicole Richie and many more, Jennifer Behr hair accessories give the perfect finish to outfits season after season. Here at Hervia we are proud to offer an exclusive selection of designs from the Jennifer Behr AW12 ready to wear collection.
