SS09 Inspirations for FW08

Now that everyone from Duluth to Sibera gets to see the runway shows within 24 hours, it's gotta put a load of pressure on magazine editors to keep the styles exciting three months down the line. It also places a load of pressure on us civilians. However, turbans need not be relegated to next spring (when they'll just make us sweaty). I grabbed my 1920s French aviator scarf and wrapped it right on.

  5. MILAN: Is the key to next summer's fashion all in a hat, or more specifically in the elusive, enticing turban, the No 1 accessory in this round of preview showings for the Spring-Summer 2007?

    "Turbans are easy, quick and powerful," said Miuccia Prada backstage, after her much applauded collection presented on Tuesday.

    You look so chic and glam. I wish I could wrap scarves as well as you so I could work the turban look!

  7. Very chic. All you now is a massive Moroccan necklace, something suitably barbaric.
