The hoopoe is a very intriguing avian.

Best known for its crown of rusty black-spotted feathers (which many believe indicates its royal origin) the hoopoe flies like a butterfly, croaks when disturbed and wheezes during courtship.

Males compete for ladybirds by trying to stab their rivals with their long sharp beaks; mama birds secrete yucky liquid from their glands to protect their eggs and the young hiss like snakes to repel intruders.

Clearly this is a species after .007’s own heart.

Without a doubt, the model that can pull off this look – uncompromisingly fierce yet genteelly refined – will be singular indeed.

Wet Bird Couture is proud to present its latest must-have look: “The Hoopoe!”

Here, notice how the model's understated crest flows back from the neckline as he prepares to display it.

With love (& lots of feathers),
