The fringe benefits of the latest runway looks
Designers are getting trim for spring, with looks that reflect a fascination with fringing. Chanel’s kaleidoscopic tweed jacket, constructed from inky aquatic-inspired threads, has fringed cuffs with loose threads flowing like fronds of kelp. At Pringle of Scotland, an intricate macramé skirt has been constructed from lengths of knotted rayon and Japanese paper, while the swishing golden sleeves of Hillier Bartley’s sweater bring a glam rock-inspired exuberance to knitwear. And at Bottega Veneta, this shimmering top has a handwoven intrecciato panel whose weft gradually falls into fine fringing, resembling dancing rays of sunlight.
