the TURBANATOR

I’ve always wanted a turban.

Yigal tempted me with his Resort ’10 collection and Junya Watanabe made it official with his Spring ’10 collection.  The Kamo pieces aren’t really turbans, they’re sculptures, but let’s not digress.  I’m wearing a turban.

I’ve never been a hat person.  But there are always exceptions.

Like this Rike Feurstein Solange hat.  It’s simple, structured and playful.  All Rike’s hat designs have a unique sensibility that make them special.  She experiments with classic shapes (fedora, beret, turban) and uses materials like heavy knits or straw to make them modern, cool and wearable.  I’m a big fan of her knit pieces. . . I’ll probably have to wait for a sale, but  it’ll be worth it.

The collection lookbooks are a fanciful compilation of shapes using wooden forms, illustrations and collages . . . whatever Rike’s inpiring mind comes up with is definitely worth seeing.

    As soon as I saw the title of your post, I started to think about whether brown-skinned girls can wear turbans as a fashion statement. I’ve seen them look good on others (yourself included), but I wonder what kind of looks I would get if I tried this trend.

    Anyway, you look great and your shoes… drool!

    Ah man, me too, I’ve always wanted to try it! And when I finally did it I got so many compliments at school, it was like wow, I actually did something right with my hair? And oh my GOD can I just say, lady your hair is the coolest of cool. And I am jealous of the extra skinniness, not gonna lie :)

    what a wonderful piece! I love how it’s an interpretation of a turban and that shirt is beautiful!

    That is an amaazing woven headpiece / turban!!! The way that it wraps your head yet it sits ever so slightly above your head.

    And the minimalism that you have styled it with.
