Trend – Fringes
Fringes are not just for summer festivals. Joseph Altuzarra had them this summer, Derek Lam for pre-fall in his secondary line 10 Crosby and Proenza Schouler just revamped them for next spring. For your current fix of fringes opt for Gucci. The Italian brand offers both, fringed shoes and bags and produces in accordance with the SA8000, an auditable social certification standard for decent workplaces. (Please see our glossary for detailed info.) At Stella McCartney it’s a subtler look. Here the fringes spice up a LBD. They are made from peace silk, a silk that allows the silk worm to live its full cycle rather than killing it in the process.
One last thing to keep in mind: With fringes, less is more. So don´t go on a fringe! (hah!)
