Details: Fringe Benefits

I’m a well known fringe fan (saves on the need for botox), and we’re delighted to report that the fringe has gone beyond a mere hair-do option and become a fashion moment in its own right. We’ve been spotting fringed accessories for some time, but recently with increasing frequency, and the fringe has moved beyond the hippy handbag and looks great on knits, jersey and soft wovens too. We love the movement and texture that a wonderful fringe or tassel adds to any outfit. Go minimal with a tasseled necklace or fully embrace the fringe with a fabulous statement jacket.

Accesories: Put the Boot In

I think the best term for these would be ‘Fantasy Boots’. Not in the smutty kind of way, but to reflect the amazing level of creativity and imagination involved in creating these high heeled, ankle length beauties!

These are a selection from our Autumn ‘Accessories’ report. There were so many amazing ankle boots to choose from this season, but these represent the creme de la creme in innovation we think. They show a really exciting new thought process around materials, colour and even in-built accessories upon accessories!

Its time to put the boot in, but only ankle deep for Autumn 2010.

Blink Discoveries- David Koma

We spotted these amazing dresses in the window of Browns Focus and were intrigued to more about their creator, David Koma.

David Koma graduated from Central Saint Martins in March 2009. His graduate collection of beautifully detailed body con styles has to be one of the most accomplished that we have seen for some time. We think this will be a name on ever fashion insiders wish list. We’re really excited to see how his style progresses over the season’s ahead.

Accessories- Super Specs

‘Geek Chic’ is still alive and going strong. Looking just as good on the girls as it does on the boys. Go large (I feel that I’m writing that on most of the posts) and choosing heavy frames or super scale shows a commitment to the look.

Spec-tacular!
