The fringes on the fringe bags from this Barbara Bonner collection are definitely one of the most noticeable elements, giving the collection a relaxed, bohemian feel. Bonner took inspiration from her grandmother, who was a traveling performer in the circus, where she rode a motorcycle in the circle of death.

Like the fun spirit of a carnival, these fringe bags are playful and whimsical, yet earthy and grounded at the same time. Although not all of the clutches and backpacks in the collection are adorned with fringe detailing, vertical stripes are carried throughout to mimic the lines from a fringe. One of the most striking pieces from the collection of accessories is a gray hangbag with a seam up the middle and a fringe all around its curved form.
