New Reid Peppard Roadkill Fashion Finds the Fun in 'Defunct'

Reid Peppard is known for her outlandish roadkill fashion, having previously created hair accessories out of animal bones and charms out of deceased rodents. Now she's back with a whole new collection of wonderfully weird roadkill accessories. Her new creations include a 'Squirrel Tail Bracelet' and a 'Rat Coin Purse.' Almost every accessory imaginable -- both male and female -- are present in Reid Peppard's work, from cufflinks to clutches.

Everything that Peppard creates comes directly from the streets of London. As a taxidermist, Peppard receives newly expired animals quite frequently and uses this to her fashion-designing advantage. It's a different way of doing things, but that's what makes these creations so inventive, if a little bit bizarre.

Reid Peppard's creative "recycling" of materials merged with high-fashion accessories makes her work some of the strangest, but unforgettable in recent fashion news. Stats for Elegant Roadkill Accessories (UPDATE) Trending: Older & Buzzing
