The Fringe Trend

So I know this isn't a new trend, but I can't seem to pull myself away from swingy strings (witness here and here). I love the way fringe moves- on a purse, on boots, on dresses, etc. And what better to wear to your holiday parties? It's as happy and lively as a reindeer jumper or santa aplique sweatshirt... and at times (meaning, always... except perhaps when said jumper is worn by a certain gentleman) sexier.

I've just bought a cheapie fringe shift from H&M, whilst lusting after all below:


Balmain has been fringey for a few seasons now. Above is from Fall RTW 08.


My personal favorite at the moment, Alessandro dell' Aqua... something to do with the combo of belts, boots and fringe (Spr RTW 09).


A bit more avant garde: Ann Demeulmeester sandwiched by Jil Sander (Spr RTW 09).

Oohh I think I know the fringe shift from H&M you're talking about! It's pretty awesome. I'd love to see how you style it!

Franco said...

I like Alessandro dell' Aqua the best[ not only because he has the coolest last name in the history of the world]

Ooo shimmy and shake. I think you have a love of fringe similar and equal to my love of sequins and floral prints. Just something about it keeps drawing you back! The Demeulmeester is magic. It would take guts and a very flat chest to wear the fringe with nothing on underneath though!

I nearly brought home my uncle's suede fringe vest from the 60s over Thanksgiving, but I knew I just couldn't pull it off. I should have my mom send it to you, Lauren.

It's so nice when something you love becomes fashionable. So many trends are just...downright objectionable to me, but fringe is a joy.=)

Kristina said...

What prince-o3-tour would be bettre in my opinion would be to remove the wrist straps and the skin, and instead make it a 2 babolat pure drive, 2 stereing wheels, 1 baseball bat and 1 golf club. Still, this package is great value for your money. When my wife informed me that Emporio Armani was now pushing its own signature wilson k six, the EA7, I’ve got to admit, I was intrigued. Italian designres producing tennis rackets? How fashion forward of thstrong. I love it. Head microgel is style and preformance at cheap tennis racquets best. Haute couture meets the hard courts.
