The accessory is proving to be a major trend for Autumn/Winter 2018.
It’s fairly safe to say that modest fashion has never been more prevalent on the catwalk as it is right now.
Not only are Modest Fashion Weeks now a staple of fashion month, but international designers in their hordes have embraced one particular accessory for next season.
From runways in Milan to Paris, designers such as Versace, Gucci and Dior have incorporated headscarves and hijabs into their Autumn/Winter 18 collections—and the results are seriously covetable.
Here, we’ve rounded up some of the best for you to bookmark for wardrobe inspiration…
Models Halima Aden and Amina Adan both donned their signature hijabs for the Italian brand’s boardroom-ready line. With reinvented tartans, chunky cashmere coats, and slouchy tailoring, Max Mara put a contemporary, just-a-touch-rebellious spin on traditional workwear. Those sheeny silk headscarves, with one clad in a subtle leopard print, were the icing on top.
The powerhouse label might have made headlines with its severed heads on the runway, but our eyes were entirely focused on its headwear. Alessandro Michele’s Cyborg collection embraced nostalgic floral and geometric prints, brought into the modern day when paired with contemporary silhouettes and urban footwear..
The heritage French fashion house paid tribute to neo-modernity in this very of-the-moment line, which was rich in silks, wools, and organzas. The softness of the fabrics contrasted perfectly against the avant-garde tailoring, with those form-fitting hijabs adding a sharp sleekness to otherwise fluid lines.
So chic, so timeless, so all we want to wear to every event from now on. The Italian label blended retro lines with a contemporary all-in-oneness in a number of must-have minis, while the colour-pop clash in the centre is encouraging us to embrace acid brights for summer.
Eighties extremes were back in action on the NYFW runway, with the designer sending out a steady stream of go big or go home designs. Oversized wools and architectural detailing reigned supreme, with the dark hijab-style wraps adding a certain sharpness.
Maria Grazia Chiuri took inspiration from Paris in 1968 for the AW18 collection, which fused retro concepts with fashion-forward finishes —the caps-cum-hijabs were a streetwise example of the overall aesthetic.
