Where all things beautiful collide

Lanvin spring 2012

Lanvin spring 2012

Two fringed looks by Alber Elbaz for Lanvin show how textural and exciting it can be.  Elbaz, forever a lover of jewelry, didn’t shy away from adding his signature layers of jewelry to the layers of fringe.  The dress (directly above) even has what appears to be coins trimming the top and forming straps.  I’m especially obsessed with the multi-color look (top) complete with more beautiful jewelry.  www.lanvin.com

Ms. Emily Blunt shows off two fringed looks that Tom Ford designed for his debut womenswear collection for his namesake brand.  The second look was actually hand painted.  A video for his fall 2011 collection was recently posted at www.tomford.com, and it’s clear that the amazing fashion will continue from the brilliant Mr. Ford!

In thinking about fringe and Tom Ford’s most current collection, I thought back to his finale collection for Gucci.  The fall 2004 show was full of glamour and sensuality.  The fringed dresses, both short and long, added a lot of energy to his farewell show.

I’ve become more of a fan of Versace over the last couple seasons.  I love when Donatella Versace focuses more on pretty over the preferred sexy Versace has become known for.  Fringe was abundant for her spring collection.  The way fringe moves makes it ideal for short slinky dresses, and long gowns alike.

January Jones in Versace

Being the face of Versace must be nice for the beautiful January Jones, who I’m sure gets the best of the best from the collections.  This little red dress looks amazing on her and incorporates the Versace greek key logo into how the fringe is cut.  The turquoise dress (above) was also worn by Jones during last awards season, but being the face she had it custom-made in red.
