scrunchie

Last week we brought you Las Bandidas, a short film starring Cara Delvinge and the scrunchie, proving the notorious hair accessory was back from the dead. This week we learn that famous design houses have taken notice and are retailing luxury versions. Missoni, known for opulent knits, has a $95 option, available on e-commerce site Net-A-Porter. It’s comprised of mint satin with a white and red crochet knit overlay. Also available on the site is a printed twill scrunchie from Marc by Marc Jacobs. If you’re looking for something more elegant try the L. Erickson offerings, made from silk. The “quick and simple styling solution” is described as a “modern take on an old favorite.” Could the scrunchie really be the new hot trend for the season? That’s up to you –– for now, take a look at more designer scrunchie looks in the style notes….  Click for StyleNotes →

There’s lots of debate about the best hair accessories; few, however, split opinion as much as the scrunchie. Women love it, mock it, or hate it. Invented by Philip E. Meyers and later patented by Rommy Revson, the fabric covered elastic tie gained popularity in the 1980s, but a decade on, it had met its death. Fashion loves a good resurrection though, and after years of fighting for head space, the scrunchie surfaced on a supermodel. Cara Delvingne was recently recruited by My Crazy Scrunchie (MSC London), a hair accessory brand, to star in a Scrunchie Western, a short film. Watch the surprising and entertaining video surrounding scrunchies below –– perhaps you’ll be inspired to wear one yourself….or not. –– Michelle Rotbart
