What it is: The almighty bandanna.
When we wore it: Strong throughout the ’90s.
Why we hate it: The bandana made us all go through somewhat of an identity crisis. I mean, were we badass rappers like Tupac, or dirty rock stars like Axl Rose? And what were we to think when peppy pop stars like Christina started sporting them? Reveal your true identity, bandanna.
Why we love it: Because we COULD be Tupac or Axl Rose or Christina just by the fold of a square piece of fabric. And they were super cheap, and could even function as a shirt when we had no tits (thank you, youth).
Would we wear it now? Who says I’m not wearing one as I write this…
Since Katy Perry and Lady Gaga have outshone her of late in the alien-esque fashion, Crayola-colored hair department, it appears that Rihanna has decided to go a little bit country. While shooting a new video for “We Found Love” in Ireland, it appears that RiRi has fashioned herself a bikini out of bandanas. What do you think? She also apparently shocked the owner of the farm she was shooting on by going topless for a few minutes, but that is another story. [Huffington Post, MTV]
Spit or swallow? Sorry, sorry. But for once you might actually choose the latter with this beautiful bandana featuring a printed swallow design. Made by Box & Flea, a design collaborative, each bandana is hand-printed in their Brooklyn studio. We love how this scarf communicates a story, appearing almost like an illustration out of a children’s book. The swallow represents “love, care and affection towards family and friends, showing the loyalty of the person always returning to them.” Of course, the birds also represent a journey — one that hopefully makes it straight to your purse or neck, or wherever else you want to show the bandana off.
