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.
