Whether you’re into the whole Y2K revival or not, you might as well accept that it’s here to stay. From baggy jeans, baguette bags, to baby tees, there’s a bevy of 2000s-inspired pieces that are making a comeback. Need more proof? We recently spotted Liza Soberano and Rei Germar wearing a Y2K trend that packs a punch: a bandana. And it’s not just a regular bandana, mind you. The exact piece they both wore was from the French fashion house of Dior, and it featured the iconic Oblique print.
We last saw Rei wear the piece back in April with sun-kissed makeup and gold jewelry. It was her simple way of bringing the summer fun into her home. The design featured the signature two-tone Oblique print in the lovely colors of brown and mocha.
On the other hand, Liza ventured into the moodier side of the spectrum when she embraced the bandana trend during her shoot with BJ Pascual. In a look inspired by Blackpink’s Jisoo, she wore a longline cardigan as a top and a camo spaghetti strap dress that complemented the lime moss green hues of her Dior bandana.
What’s so great about his bandana, you might ask? Well, as you already know, the Oblique print is one of Dior’s most iconic elements and is part of the brand’s DNA. Although it was created in 1967 and used on everything from bags to clothes in the ‘70s, the print didn’t blow up into mainstream consciousness until the early 2000s when John Galliano reinterpreted the print on bikinis, cover-ups, and more handbags. Suffice to say, it helped cement the logomania trend of that epoch. As for bandanas in general, they were huge in the early 2000s and were worn by everyone from Christina Aguilera, Jennifer Lopez, to Disney stars like Hilary Duff and Raven Symone.
Basically, the Dior scarf represents two trends in one piece and that’s why it’s amazing.
If you want your own piece, you can cop Rei's exact scarf at the Dior boutique in Solaire Resort & Casino. Their sales associates can assist you should you want to purchase one remotely. Just inquire through 0917-509-7288.
As for Liza’s, the closest design to her tonal green one is the Diortwin Square Scarf, which features a double-sided design of army green and navy blue.
Of course, as with all designer things, these babies come at a price. Rei’s scarf costs P34,000 while the Diortwin similar to Liza’s costs $570 (approximately P27,633.60).
Yeah, there’s a reason why we call this the bandana of our dreams.
