Fringe_benefits_large

Do you <3 fringe? Lately there has been a resurgence of fringe- and no offense to those who have been rocking fringe all along- a la suede jackets from the 60s and moccasins- but there is a new kind of fringe on the horizon. This fringe is soft and slinky (Rodarte), conceptually cut in leather (Balenciaga), dyed in an ombre fashion (Topshop), and quite feminine, yet is has an edge that is very current.

I used to be a dancer and my costumes always seemed to have some sort of neon fringe attached to them, and this same fringe is now on skirts, t-shirts, bags- but it is dyed neutral tones creating an almost gothic look, like Marchesa Casati might have worn. I am really loving the comeback. Do you?

    I loved the metal fringe on those Balenciaga scarves (far left). That was such a great season.

    I have this awesome leather work book that shows how to add fringes to boots and even to make an awesome little leather lace-like bolero…the 1970’s knew how to do hippy leather!

    i’d love to see some burdastyle creations with fringe-influences.
