Turban/ Head wrap
I think the turban/ head wrap look is quite chic. Am thinking of trying this look on myself but I have no idea on how to go abt doing it. So I need help in the cloth used, how big, and the method of tying up. Thanks in advance for the help!

There is also a thread about this as a trend on the trends-section, you might find advice from there too.

The Modern Turban / Headwrap
I searched and couldnt find a topic on this big seasonal phenomenon.
It has been sported by many celebs for some time now but is still discussed between the fashion tribes as here today in the New York Times.

(article from the NYT)

Somehow It Feels Old Hat
by Eric Wilson

THERE are reasons to raise a skeptical brow when a group as disparate as Miuccia Prada, Ralph Lauren, Donna Karan, Marc Jacobs and Madonna attempt to bring turbans of the Old Hollywood variety back into fashion.

One from the late ’30s by Lilly Daché.

Turbans may be an appropriate visual accent in fashion’s current fixation with early 20th-century revivals, along with the cloche styles favored by Paul Poiret, who is getting the curatorial treatment at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in May. But since Ms. Prada made the most conspicuous use of turbans, showing glamorous jewel-tone versions in her spring collection, fashion people have been wondering whether an accessory that fell out of favor in Western fashion after World War II could enjoy a renaissance.
If they wear Ms. Prada’s pricey turbans, or the inexpensive Madonna versions at H & M, will they be seen as modern-day Lana Turners luring their postmen? Or as ding-dongs.
This week, The Daily, a gossipy fashion site, took stock of those who have turned up at recent events in the Prada looks, including the designer Rachel Roy, the socialite Vanessa Traina and the turbanista Mary-Kate Olsen, who strangely wore one atop her long white tresses and ended up looking more like Axl Rose. Vogue Hommes did not help matters by hilariously showing Ms. Prada’s turbans on a man.
The Fashion Institute of Technology is now showing an exhibition of the styles of the milliner Lilly Daché, including a darling navy and pale green striped straw turban from the late ’30s, when fashion hats were the norm. Nadine Leichter, an adjunct instructor, said it was unlikely that the new styles would regain that kind of popularity, for the simple reason that the manufacturing capability of a designer like Ms. Daché no longer exists.
“The turban is so mysterious, but it has such a stigma of the old lady not coming out of her housedress all day,” Ms. Leichter said.
On the other hand, the style — fluid and lightweight — works well with the loose, voluminous clothing of the moment.
“Hats always reflect what is happening in fashion,” she said, as wishful as a turban-clad genie. “But it does have to overcome the old-fashioned point of view.”
I will here with confess that i have succombed to buying one myself and love it! (i will stress though that i only got the headband version)

There's a thread on this in the trends section, not accessories so it's fine i think.

I actually think it looks quite good, although I know many people have said it looks ridiculous. How many different colours are there available of the Prada turban?

And is it more like a head wrap? Or is there some kind of firm structure/framework on the inside...

i am unsure about the turban... but the knotted headband is elasticated...
there are 2 version of the headband, one evening version in a shiny silk and a matte silk version for the day.
this is not the price fo rthe turban but headbands. 200 and 185 Euros respectively

is that you wearing it in your avvy leyla? I think they are quite hard to wear personally (i mean the turbans, not the headbands). I've only ever seen it look chic on one of the monaco princesses during the summer in the 70's. And of course bianca jagger.
