I knew it would happen. I knew the day would come. I just know myself too well. As I flicked through those Prada S/S07 pictures, initial jokes aside, I knew it was only a mtter of time that the turban would come and get me. I’m not entirely sure whether it was the deft intelligence of Miuccia Prada or the lure of doing a ‘Little Edie’ from Grey Gardens (surely the most oft-used fashion reference of 2006-7!), but there it is, the wheels of fashion grabbed me by the shoulders and shook me whilst chanting the words ‘You shall wear a turban!’ over and over again. I toyed with wearing turban hats of which Headcovers has a large selection and I’m also waiting for some sheeny shiny satin to arrive so I can go and do a DIY Prada jobbie but for ease of day wear, I grabbed my faithful American Apparel jersey scarves and did a quick wrap around the head. Bad hair days and wind-mussed up barnet be gone! Say hello to the first 2007 fash victim move (in case you don’t know, I’ve made many of those moves, none of which I regret!).
