Accessories Report: Fringe Worthy
From rock-n-roll to the runway, the fringe trend has had many incarnations throughout fashion history. In the 1920’s “flapper-style” was all the rage…little dresses that shimmied and shined while shedding the restrictive dress norms of the past gave women a sense of true self-expression. In the 50s, with the surge of rockstar culture, icons like Elvis Presley led the way and gave fashion a needed edge. This carried through deep into the 60s and 70s, though the more ornate morphed into a hippie-inspired vibe that continues to resonate well into 2018.
Spring’s fringe is more “stage-diva-meets-boho-luxe” with modern details that are so now. Loewe’s Paula Bag in white is a gypset favorite with a sleek vertical silhouette and a cascade of dramatic fringe. The coveted logo is an added style-maven bonus.
Into labels, but not into showing them, then this white stunner from Versus is the way to go. Always an iconic shape, the bucket bag gets a major update with the addition of an impressive wall of fringe and detachable strap…classic-meets-cool.
The true modernist, Alexander Wang gives fringe a rocker-chic, street-edge that only a designer for NYC can perfect. His Ryan Mini Fringed Dustbag is perfect for off-duty wear, with bi-color fringe that gives a powerful graphic punch…your new, everyday go-to.
For the more traditional luxury addict looking for a little added pop, we love the Paris Rocks Crossbody in a racy red. Subtle fringe details and chic silver hardware take this from handbag to IT-BAG in a fashion-flash, or should we say flashback?
