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.
