Spring ’13: A Season On The Fringe
Fringe has circled in and out of fashion since at least the Great Gatsby era, and the shaggy stuff materialized once again at some of Spring’s most memorable shows. Joseph Altuzarra, Bottega Veneta’s Tomas Maier, and Nina Ricci’s Peter Copping took silk tassels in a glam direction; their slinky looks shook with each step down the runway. And speaking of glitz, how about those metallic tinsel-covered numbers from Versace? We’ll be seeing those on a red carpet sooner rather than later. The Rodarte girls went rock star, whipping up Claude Montana-esque leather biker jackets that are sure to be popular with the street-style crowd, while Saint Laurent’s Hedi Slimane created a crocheted leather duster-length cape that complemented the covenlike look of the overall collection.
