Every now and then, we are lucky enough to experience the increasingly rare occurrence of an It-accessory that is actually affordable. Move over Céline bags and Chloé shoes, there’s a new guy in town—and some cost as little as $10 a pop. Introducing: the bandana.
Or, rather, re-introducing the bandana, since the accessory is far from being the new kid on the block. It’s been a go-to for a long time in certain circles—motorcycle gangs, punk rockers, and rock n’ roll icons have long relied upon the classic printed handkerchief to add a dash of colour and flavour to their wardrobes. And lest we forget, the bandana belongs originally to that great symbol of the American West—the cowboy.
