A little more than a year ago, I wrote an article for Velvet Magazine about Karl Lagerfeld’s pre-fall 2012 Chanel runway show. More specifically, I reported about the Indian-inspired head jewellery that was worn by his models, and hypothesized that though avant-garde and not very easy to wear with Western ensembles, the statement pieces would soon become the next big headwear trend.
Today, while browsing the high-street shopping site ASOS, guess what I came across?
Sure, some of them (like the panther headpiece below) come across as heavily commercial, and lose the cultural inspiration. But some are delightfully delicate, and others incorporate a touch of goth glamour. Shop the pieces, priced between $15-$30, at Asos.com.
It’s finally done! Here are the pieces from my latest collection:
Arabesque embellished collars
Travesti – white
Travesti – black
Travesti- light blue
Available next week in s*uce stores in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. For orders and inquiries please send an e-mail to email@example.com, and become a fan on Facebook to stay up-to-date with news and more pictures.
From April to November of 2012, my final months of studying journalism at Ryerson University, I was working on this story for the Ryerson Review of Journalism, a magazine circulated across Canada that tackles critical issues in national journalism. Last month, the magazine was published and this week, my story was posted online. You can read it here.
Scottish designer Holly Fulton showed her Spring/Summer 2013 ready to wear collection in London today, and her pieces featured an eyeful of Middle East inspirations—in a tasteful, creative and fashion forward way, unlike Jeremy Scott’s tacky sequined leopard print burqa. Known for her expertise in creating prints, Holly Fulton’s designs mixed eye-popping icons with aztec elements, delicate roses, bold stripes and python textures. No matter what follows in the upcoming weeks in London, Paris and Milan, this collection is likely to be my favorite of the season!
