Still Waters

A lavish red and white ostrich feather headdress, designed to make its 16th Century wearer stand out from the crowd, has been recreated.

The original 1m (3ft 2in)-wide bonnet was made in 1521 for Matthaus Schwarz - the German credited with creating the world's first book about fashion.

It has been recreated by the University of Cambridge for an exhibition in Germany this summer.
