There was a festival of fringe at the Jil Sander ready-to-wear show for the Spring 2009 line. Designer Raf Simons' collection included many 1920's inspired pieces draped with layers of flowing trim.
Simple short shift dresses were swathed with floor length swinging threads in classic black and white. Other designs more typically 'Sander's' included clean, geometric and asymmetrical shapes, hand cut-outs and panels detailed with the almost shear effect of strands.
I love the playful movement of tassels and fringes and this collection is undeniably wearable and elegantly sexy.
