“She loved the cap and I gifted her one—then that night she rocked it while attending an event.”
She made headlines when she flew the flag for modest fashion in London last month.
And now the designer behind one of Lindsay Lohan’s hijabs has revealed the inspiration behind the urban number.
The 31-year-old actress donned a baseball cap with an in-built scarf to the British capital’s Modest Fashion Week, and ever since we saw the pictures we’ve been thinking about the unique piece.
The accessory blends both modesty and minimalism with a street-smart edge, and is the brainchild of Amsterdam-based designer Loubna Sadoq.
“I’ve been in modest fashion for four years now, [and] because of the scarves line I have created I saw that many women like to wear a hijab and a cap,” the owner of fashion label Sadoq told EmiratesWoman.com.
“However, most of the time the cap doesn’t suit the scarves’ fabric, colours and print. Plus, wearing a scarf and a cap can be too hot, especially in summer.”
Enter the HICAP, Sadoq’s hybrid creation blended in light and breezy cotton, which aims to solve such styling dilemmas.
“We have created one side of the scarf longer than the other so you can drape it over the shoulder,” she added, revealing it took 18 months to find the right manufacturer.
The design comes in two colours, black and dusty pink, two sizes, and costs €65.00 (Dhs294)—and yes, shipping can be arranged to the UAE for purchases made on the Sadoq website.
Sadoq was especially pleased to win the support of the “lovely” Lohan, who she met at London’s Modest Fashion Week.
“We had a chit chat. She loved the cap and I gifted her one,” the designer said. “The same night she rocked it while attending an event (and looked lovely in it).”
Renowned hijabi model Halima Aden also sported the hicap at Milan Fashion Week, Sadoq added.
“The hicap is for everyone who wants to wear casual and street-style clothing or wear it while sporting or covering in the sun,” she said of the versatile design.
