What comes to mind when you think of fringe? Western movies? Gatsby-themed parties? Music festivals? That’s what usually comes to mind for me, personally (plus, it can overall just be tacky…and how many fringe bikinis is it going to take for us to move on to a new swimwear trend?). But then Chanel did this whole Paris meets Dallas thing for their Métiers d’Art show in December and I started to feel a little differently towards fringe…and it seems like other designers are starting to do the same.
