Meet the Brooklyn identical twins behind the first luxury durag label, ‘The creative designers, Dynasty & Soull Ogun. L’Enchanteur is a luxury concept brand inspired by the sciences, colour theory, numerology, religion, mythologies, magic, and fairytales.
Normally, durags retail at very affordable price points — generally no more than a couple of bucks. That said, “while they were originally intended to only be worn around the crib, they quickly became a fashion statement within black culture, adopted by rappers, athletes, and celebrities. The durag is more than just a simple piece of cloth. It is deep-rooted in black culture and can be found at any beauty supply in the States, Africa, and globally. Similar to the bonnet for black women, the durag helps countless black men keep their waves, cornrows, and dreads in check. When it comes to black hair, preservation is key, and the durag is the first line of protection against the friction of pillows.”
