Turbans: A Wrapper’s Delight

-------

Any way you wind it, turbans have been making fashion statements since Paul Poiret began topping off his creations with them way back in the early twentieth century (though Sikhs, of course, had been wearing them for centuries before that). Recall 1940′s film noir costumes à la Joan Crawford, the glory days of Yves Saint Laurent, Prada’s Spring 2007 show, and even Sex and the City 2. This summer, they’re making yet another return. On the street, It girls like Vika Gazinskaya and Margherita Missoni have adopted the look, and at his haute couture show last week, Jean Paul Gaultier took a bow in a turban similar to those he showed in his Resort collection. But perhaps credit for the current trend ultimately goes, as it so often does, to Karl Lagerfeld. The Chanel head honcho sent Baptiste Giabiconi down his pre-fall runway in Rajasthani jewels and a “murban.”

    I would love to try this as I have to wash my hair so much more in the summer. This could save me a day. But I honestly just don’t know if I could pull it off!
