City Pulse

By Kiki Von Glinow

From a birthday present to an entrepreneurial idea to a spot on national television, it’s been a wild ride for the young designers behind headband line, Pas Comme Les Moutons. Amee Carter, an NYU senior, started crafting one-of-a-kind headbands for herself and friends before friend and New School senior, Sabrina Bacon urged her to turn it into something more lucrative.

The design duo has been hitting the pavement ever since, even watching their creations bounce around on the heads of Gossip Girl’s trendiest Upper East Siders on the show’s latest season. Not straying too far from the meaning behind their French name (translating to ‘not like sheep’) the two definitely don’t follow the herd. From feathers to crystals to satin fabrics, their designs have a nouveau bohemian meets city chic aesthetic that can be the centerpiece to any simple tee and jeans or little black dress.

Worn by stars like Peaches Geldof and Paris Hilton, word is spreading fast about these newcomers to the design world. Currently sold at Owl Lab and pascommelesmoutons.com, the two are also looking to incorporate clothing, shoes and accessories into their brand. Although their price point is a bit steep with a range of $50 to $250, it’s well worth it.
