Turban, 20th century
A Turban is a headdress that has been fashionable since the Middle Ages. We wrote a separate post about the history of the turban in Western fashion before the 19th century.
In the 20th century, in the 1910s, Paul Poiret brought the turban back into fashion. The fashion for the oriental style is complemented by the Russian Seasons of Sergei Diaghilev. In the 1920s – 1960s, the turban no longer looked like an oriental accessory, it was almost a hat. In the 1940s, the peak of the turban’s popularity. It is worn by ladies as a hat (sometimes already sewn), and sometimes turbans are made from scarves for the convenience of work, it was especially popular during the Second World War. In the 1940s, turbans consisted of not only cloth, but also a lot of decoration.
In the 1960s, the fashion for the turban returned, but more like a hat or beret.
