Rachel Piskin headbands

Rachel Piskin headbands
For her Coquette collection of handmade pieces, Rachel Piskin, a former New York City Ballet dancer, was inspired by the real thing: the exquisite designs she wore dancing to the works of George Balanchine. Choose from feathers, flowers and even a pearl-and-beaded headband, fastened on a double-satin thin ribbon—it resembles a crown. Strap one on and play ballerina for the night. coquetteheadpieces.com, $40--$150
EXPERIENCE IT! Piskin is no longer dancing, but to see her inspiration in action, head to New York City Ballet. The winter season begins on Tue 24 with an opening-night gala, and includes The Nutcracker (Nov 27--Feb 28). nycballet.com, $20--$215
