Milan Fashion Week Focused on Fringe

START body

Fringed clothing has come a long way from its association with 1920s flapper dresses, Western-style leather jackets, or hippie-era suede vests. At Milan Fashion Week, designers took fringe to a new level, incorporating the style into unique garments and accessories in unexpected proportions and colors. The shredded detail added movement, making any look a bit more festive, and its sudden revival is sure to shake up the fashion system this winter.

Bottega Veneta’s take on fringe dominated the runway. Strips of fabric dropping from coats and dresses dusted the floor, and clutch bags swayed as they made their way down the catwalk. Striking, two-toned dresses were elevated with a shredded hem, with pops of citron green giving the Fall/Winter 2020 collection a colorful twist. Perhaps the most unique designs from Daniel Lee’s latest collection were the buttery, yellow fur coat with thick, furry fringe making its way to the ground, as well as the matching bag of the same color and fabric.

At Boss, Ingo Wilts’ collection ranged in color, from earth tones to an abundance of lilac garments. Fringe was applied in a sleek way, adorning bags and dresses. For accessories, a leather handbag, complete with extra-long fringe and a chain strap, coordinated with the two-toned boots in the collection perfectly. A lilac midi dress dripped in thin tassels as it swept down the runway. Winter essentials, such as scarves and coats, featured fringed hems in leather and wool, giving cold-weather dressing a chic new look.

Paul Andrew’s collection for Salvatore Ferragamo consisted of crystal dresses and skirts reminiscent of the ’20s flapper style. It was a take on fringe that had yet to be seen on the Milan Fashion Week runways. A black, strapless dress was accentuated with both traditional fringe and fabric links that fell off of the garment. The feminine silhouettes embodied a classic sensuality and elegance from a vintage-inspired lens.

At Prada, thick fringe skirts were layered underneath suit jackets, creating a modern interpretation of the skirt suit. And that’s not where the detailing stopped. The explosion of shredding in Miuccia Prada’s latest collection brought fringe to shoes, bags, dresses, and coats. Nearly everything that touched the runway had even the smallest touch of a fringe on it. Come fall, the beaded fringe heels may very well be as popular as the brand’s flame sandals.
