Band Aids


Black-Headband-KarlieBack in high school, the girl gang I used to pal around with could be identified by three things: a collective bad attitude, the red ’82 VW cabriolet my best friend drove through senior year, and a communal love for pixie bands. I think it was a rave-culture spin-off, but there was something both tough and undeniably sexy about pulling your hair way back and sliding that thick black band just beyond the hairline. You can imagine my excitement, then, when the accoutrement had a small comeback on the Fall runways. Both Julien d’Ys and Guido Palau sent them down the runway at Balenciaga and Nina Ricci, respectively, and last night at the Gordon Parks Foundation Awards in New York, Karlie Kloss followed suit. As if the impossibly tall supe needed any help in the way of accentuating her long, lithe features. Thoughts on Karlie’s nod to sleek severity?
