40 Rapunzel-Inspired Concepts

From Fairytale Furniture to Intricate Couture Tresses

— June 10, 2012 — Fashion
These Rapunzel-inspired concepts are all built upon the back of the classic German folk story. While some have coveted the entire plot for its riveting and original twists, most have remained enamored with the fable's "Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your hair" line. This famous sentence has become a fixture of pop culture, referenced time and time again via song, play and artistic rendering.

Fairytale furniture and intricate couture tresses are outgrowths of the mainstream obsession with the Rapunzel account. The excessively long braid worn by the female protagonist has been consistently replicated within products, looks and designs, each with its own distinctive take on the style. And though Rapunzel is a fictional character, this has stopped few from conjuring up her likeness.
