Spring summer 2011 has been the season of surprises. First the king of minimalism, Raf Simons, threw caution to the wind with offhand extravagance, then Miuccia Prada abandoned all airs and graces for lashings of monkey business and banana tomfoolery, and now the turban has officially made a comeback.
After associations with grannies in housecoats, you'd think it would take some talent to make the turban desirable again. But when something hits the catwalks everywhere from Giorgio Armani to Vena Cava and is seen on the heads of style queens Kate Moss and Sarah Jessica Parker, the rags n rollers subtext is over-ridden.
But while the turban may be the key to spring sartorial chic, it isn't one to slip into the wardrobe without fuss even the most skilled style maven can get it wrong. Team this signature print Missoni turban with stark tailoring, like these All Saints trousers, and brighten up with a wooly knit and bold accessories. And if were really going to hark back to old-Hollywood then you can always depend on a French powerhouse to add jaw-dropping glamour to the mix - this Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci clutch doesn't disappoint.More
