Fringes In The Wind | Valentina Cirasola |Designer

Girl-Pink-Green-1aWelcome to a new Friday Fashion episode.
Since a couple of years ago fringes have shown up on clothing and all fashion accessories, even on shoes. It is a kind of Bohemian, hippy, late 1960’s style revival, when wearing this clothing with fringes, beads, headband and used clothes meant searching for spontaneity, expressing free love, and expanding consciousness. It was an era when youth fought against war, civil right, rejected institutions and all constrictive thinking. The new concept of fringes expresses today’s casual living and leisure time. It has no other social connotation, it is only a revival of something that made history and still looks good.

Now, if you have a leather jacket with zippers, pockets, whistles and bells keep it in your closet, perhaps that style will come around again. This year’s leather jacket is simpler, looser, lightweight, soft and deconstructed of frills, almost like a second shirt. Colors are powdery, allusive, and suggestive of softness, they are the colors seen in other eras: soft pink, dusty pink, mauve, cream, antique gold, baby blue, or pearl grey. Wine is one of the dark colors.



The new leather jacket has elbow sleeves or 3/4 sleeves, no buttons, no zippers and no interior lining, its very long, sassy fringes makes the length of the jacket. With elbow sleeves, it is OK to show the long sleeves of the garment wore underneath.  Due to its lightweight, we will be able to wear it even in the summer.

Would you like to wear it together with a fringed skirt? I wouldn’t do it. Keep the look interesting, clean, smart and not confused.
