Groundbreaking dresses, designs by large firms or the classic suede jackets in the purest cowboy style fill the wardrobe with fringes, one of the trends of the season.
The singer Rosalía in her latest video clip, the queen of Spain Letizia during an awards ceremony, the actresses Sienna Miller, Penélope Cruz and Regina Hall or Paulina Rubio are some of the women who know how to adapt the trend in their day to day or on the red carpets.
With a fineness in the thread such as Manila shawls, wide or round with beads or in the purest leather, fringes have never been retreated in women’s clothing and not in accessories, where footwear and bags adopt them to create diverse styles.
This winter they will not leave the wardrobe either, a trend that will refresh next spring, where the collections of Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Balmain, Hugo Boss or Hermés bet on them in a subtle way, to finish skirts or pants, or by taking risks and making jackets, dresses or bibs that are pure fantasy in motion.
In the roaring 1920s fringes were all the rage on ladies’ dresses, beads wiggled frenziedly to the rhythm of the Charleston. A time marked by hedonism, parties and luxury that “The Great Gatsby” (“The Great Gatsby”), by Scott Fitzgerald, was able to represent in its maximum splendor, a fashion that definitively liberated women from corsets and made more free.
Glitter and fantasy that today are transferred to the women’s wardrobe combined with socks, ankle boots and t-shirts, a mixture that, despite what it may seem, works, as Virginie Viard, the creative director of Chanel, demonstrated during the presentation of the Cruise Collection.
Dior has not been left behind and her daring has led Maria Grazia Chiuri to create a dress with long and fine golden fringes that she has not hesitated to combine with sneakers.
At Balmain, Olivier Rousteing wants to recover the joy of living with a lot of fantasy and fringed dresses next spring, especially with a design made with miniature chains that fall frayed, ideal for those who do not want to go unnoticed: a soft jingle warns that someone is about.
In its ready-to-wear collection, Louis Vuitton adds a fancy extra to women’s blouses with fringed details made with jet.
Sober, but just as fun and playful, fringes have been the hallmark of Wild West jackets and pants, a way of adorning garments made with resistant textiles that admitted, in their first moments, few dressings.
Paco Rabbane, Loewe, Dsquared2 or Khaité have known how to reproduce them without losing their original style, but adding current details, adapting them to very feminine tints and patterns, which have managed to conquer Katie Holmes and Olivia Palermo, in winter and summer.
Accessories such as boots and bags achieve an informal and youthful “look” that Celine has known how to transfer to round off a “boho style”, beyond the Coachella festival. A style that is rounded off with hippie-inspired skirts, with vests and loose garments, naive creations.
The traditional Oxford have made a strong comeback to eliminate the tyranny of heels, while at the opposite point are the sophisticated boots with pearls forming fringes by Asian designer Andrew Gn, a proposal for this fall that leaves no one indifferent.
The movement has returned to the dressing room, with play and fantasy in all options.
