For spring/sum­mer 2017, Dolce & Gab­bana sent mod­els down the run­way sport­ing over­sized bows, bejewelled crowns, and moun­tains of flow­ers and fruit piled high on their heads. This was state­ment head­gear at its big­gest, bright­est and bold­est.

From Maison Margiela to Anya Hind­march, a whole range of de­sign­ers in­cor­po­rated ban­dan­nas in their spring/sum­mer shows. At Louis Vuit­ton, this wide band with braided de­tail­ing cre­ated a look that was dark, tough – and a lit­tle bit fu­tur­is­tic.

March­esa paired its ethe­real gowns with slicked-back locks held in place with gemen­crusted clips. You can copy the look with faux stones, but re­ally, in this in­stance, only the finest jewels will do.

Hair ac­ces­sories at Elie Saab’s spring/sum­mer 2017 haute cou­ture pre­sen­ta­tion were, as is his wont, ul­tra-fem­i­nine and so­phis­ti­cated, rang­ing from ul­tra-wide satin-sheen head­bands to tiara-like bands be­fit­ting a princess.

Gucci’s cre­ative di­rec­tor, Alessan­dro Michele, missed no op­por­tu­nity to adorn his mod­els with un­con­ven­tional head­gear dur­ing Gucci’s spring/sum­mer 2017 show, but it was the vo­lu­mi­nous, tur­ban-like head­wraps – which chan­nelled a bo­hemian 1970s vibe – that stole the show.
