Close up of Vintage Tom Ford Gucci bag
Time for another burst of colour, this time of a more irridescent nature. I know I’m such a girly girl but I simply adore all the feathers, frills and froth of the springtime collections. Don’t get me wrong, I love black and cream, and white and beige, and brown and khaki… well, I guess there isn’t too much I don’t like, come to think of it, but these are some juicy colours, aren’t they?
I’m half tempted to pull out my “Vintage” (and what is the cut-off age for VINTAGE, BTW??) Tom Ford Peacock feather bag from his earliest moments at Gucci- Those were the days! Hurry up with that new Women’s collection Tom!!
The male peacock sports about 150 of the long “eyed” peacock tail feathers with which most of us are so familiar. These feathers are shed annually during the molt and gathered as a valuable “crop” in many countries through its range. These feathers are actually long extensions of the upper tail covers. These feathers grow to be several feet long, but are shed each year just after the breeding season. Each of these long feathers also has a design near its tip which resembles an eye.
The shimmering color of the peacock feather is due to a phenomena known as interference. Each feather consists of tiny flat flat branches. When light shines on the feather, we see thousands of glimmering colored spots, each caused by minuscule bowl-shaped indentations. This same principle is also responsible for vibrant shimmering colors of butterflies, pheasants, birds of paradise and humming birds. Recreating the unique color of the peacock feather has posed a challenge to artists and ceramists for centuries. (nicked from Tonyhill.net)
