If Karl Lagerfeld says it’s all about the turban, then you can be sure, whether you like it or not, at some point in the next six months you might find yourself thinking ‘can I can’t I’?

Style icon and grand daughter of the Missoni family, Margherita Missoni, is also a lover of turbans and manages to pull off a hippy chic/contemporary vintage look, in the way only a 28 year born into one of the worlds biggest fashion dynasties could!
Proenza Schular also featured turbans in their S/S 2012 collection.
