A Curated Collection of Vintage Turbans

with one comment

Modern men and women are privileged to have access to an infinite variety of hair products to manipulate sad tresses into any imaginable shape. But our brave predecessors had far fewer options. Back then, a bad hair day could ruin your week. Back then, fashion was the only cure for deadly hair. Hats, snoods, beanies, scarves, buckets (in a pinch), and yes…turbans.

We have for you this week an expertly curated collection of sensational vintage turbans, all available right now from various sellers on eBay and etsy. Click on each image below to see the actual listing.

And if you’re thinking, “there’s no way I could ever pull off a vintage turban!” you’re most likely correct. Only those who fully appreciate the exalted turban deserve to wear one. So march on, sister. March on.

Redux on the Runway

leave a comment »

Prada debuted some fantastic 1960s inspired dresses for the label’s Fall 2011 collection. This little number below is one of my favorites; a dropped waist, almost schoolgirl frock, with a crisp, pleated skirt and low slung belt. I especially love the high, rounded neck and oversized buttons. I’m not crazy about how they styled the dress with those snakeskin boots. I would’ve chosen sleek, white mid-calf boots with a square toe instead, but then Prada surely would’ve been accused of copying André Courrèges.
