it’s a wrap
The scarf trend, launched by the shemaghs Nicolas Ghesquière showed in his Fall 2007 collection for Balenciaga, shows no signs of abating. This week alone, we’ve spotted women wearing them as capes, head scarves, and even cocktail dress alternatives; men, on the other hand, are sticking to draping them around their necks à la Hedi Slimane. On the runway, Veronique Branquinho attached scarves to clear plastic visors, while Christian Lacroix turned them into head wraps and wearable parasol/satellite dishes. Looks like we’ll be wrapping up for a while to come.
