Fringed capes, fringed dresses, fringed jackets, fringed bags, fringed belts... if there was one word to sum up the key detail of autumn/winter '15 it would undoubtedly be fringing. With tassels splashed across every major collection of the season, including Burberry Prorsum's '70s take and Balmain's modern metallic lashings, we've pulled out our five favourite looks. 


Burberry Prorsum's '70s bohemian aesthetic was filled with fringing.  Folkloric '70s-style capes, booties and long satchel bags all featured tassled suede.

Emilio Pucci

Low-slung fringed skirts teamed with soft, ruffled blouses at Emilio Pucci were the perfect mix of sweet and sexy.


Fringed coats, gloves, necklaces and earrings were all seen at Lanvin.  It was an eclectic mix of textures, prints and colour clashes.

Nina Ricci

At Nina Ricci fringing was shown in a more feminine and ladylike way for a look that was clean and somehow still modern. 

Proenza Schouler

Feathered shoulder accents and fringed peplums added extra texture to the embellished and sheer dresses at Proenza Schouler.
