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.
Headscarves with a modern sensibility and a touch of classic glamor
Designer headscarves today are inspired by the past, but with a modern twist that makes them versatile and comfortable.
