Headwraps 

It is evident that Marc Jacobs was inspired by the famous headwraps of Africa during his spring-summer 2018 fashion reveal when models strutted the runway in headwraps. Famous models such as Kendall Jenner and Kaia Gerber were spotted in what is known as the Marc Jacobs turbans which he credited as being inspired by the fashion choices of two white women, though they bear striking similarities to the “Duhku” or “Doek” of Africa.
