Is The Male Turban Becoming A Fashion Trend?

On his most recent cruise show, Karl Lagerfeld swathed his lovely man-thing, Baptiste Giabiconi, in full old-lady regalia, including pearls, a brooch, and what looks like a classy Turbie Twist. The Daily Mail reports that Karl's made it something of a personal mission to make the murban (man turban) happen. The look may be inconceivable right now, but remember how we all felt about drop-crotch pants, clogs, and—oh yes—even the female turban? And besides, I remember seeing quite a few young, non-Sikh black men in the Bay Area sporting those silk swimming cap-style turbans—so, we guess it's possible? Be honest: How do you feel about the murban? (Daily Mail)
