While browsing through the A/W press shows this last few weeks, I seemed to gravitate towards anything and everything with a tassel and/or fringing. While walking through the Oasis showcase and nattering on about how much I love a pom pom, I looked down at my outfit and realised I was wearing a skirts covered in fringing and tassel bracelets. I don’t think I needed to explain, really.
The style – which I referred to as ‘stuff with shit hanging from it’ at the press launch….I know they are going to rob that tagline by the way. – is popping up everywhere for A/W, both on the catwalk and the high street. Two stores doing it very well are Zara and Oasis.
And lets not forget about the humble pom pom, from shoes to bags, to jackets and earring, if you don’t own something with a pom pom on it, well, you’re a loser really. Best pom poms on the high street go to River Island and ASOS.
All of the above is a by line to the whole gypsy/folk style ruling the runway right now. And long may it last, and continue to trickle onto the high street, packaged in an affordable price tag!
