Bringing Classic Hollywood Glamor to the 21st Century: The Inspiration Behind Our Headscarves

As a designer, I find influence all over, but probably nowhere more than the bohemian and golden age of film, when it came to this collection of headscarves. Hollywood starlets grabbed the hearts and minds of millions from the 1920s to the 1960s with their stunning looks and classic style. While I've always had a special appreciation for the 1930s bohemian look and Audrey Hepburn's famous style, I also draw inspiration from modern sensibilities, creating headscarves that are not only reminiscent of classic Hollywood glamor, but also have a contemporary edge. My Krysalis Kouture collection combines opulent materials, striking prints, and comfortable designs to make stylish headscarves that provide both coverage and comfort for women with thinning hair.

 In this article, I will take you on a journey through the history of Hollywood fashion and the bohemian movement that has inspired my headscarf designs. We will explore how my headscarves honor the past while bringing a modern touch to the classic headscarf style. From classic to contemporary, the Krysalis Headscarf collection is the perfect accessory to add a touch of elegance and sophistication to any outfit.

Form the Bohemian to the Mod

  • The bohemian trend of the 1930s brought about a new era of headscarf fashion

The ancient Hollywood A-listers were no strangers to the traditional adornment known as the headscarf. In her movies, the1920s fashion star Clara Bow

frequently wore a headscarf, which went perfectly with the cute, short flapper hairstyles and bedroom eye makeup. As the bohemian trend gained popularity, the 1930s became a particularly significant decade for fashion, with designs that celebrated freedom and individualism through loose-fitting garments, natural textiles, and earthy hues. I incorporate this bohemian nonconformity through the prints in my headscarves, which use original abstract works of art by fine artist Robb Kramer in hues that capture our era's spirit of independence.

The golden age of cinema

  • Headscarves have been a popular fashion accessory for centuries, but their popularity skyrocketed during the golden age of cinema.

    Particularly well-known for wearing headscarves was Greta Garbo. Her white silk headscarf in the 1930 movie Anna Christie, started an immediate trend, making the headscarf a classic piece of clothing.

    In the 1950s Hollywood starlets also captivated my attention. With their fashionable headscarves, women like Brigitte Bardot, Audrey Hepburn, and even Jackie Kennedy oozed elegance and sophistication. Their headscarves added a touch of glitz to any outfit, whether they tied them loosely over their hair or securely around their heads.

    Although my headscarf designs are significantly influenced by both the 1950s sophisticated style and the 1930s bohemian aesthetic, they drew inspiration from a variety of sources other than the movie industry. I also looked to high fashion through the decades, including the effortless chic of the 1970s and the bold, colorful prints of the 1980s. These sources of inspiration have helped me create a range of headscarves that reflect my passion for vintage fashion while feeling contemporary and accessible. I design classic and modern pieces using luxurious materials and stunning prints that make you feel confident, stylish, and comfortable, no matter what life throws your way. The Krysalis Kouture collection is versatile and perfect for anyone on the go, whether you're running errands or attending a special event. Live in grace and confidence through difficult times with Krysalis Kouture headscarves.
